Oscar: I agree with your analysis, but it is incomplete. There is a group

C: Users who have only cygwin gcc 4.x installed

For those, the current setup will produce an error message, essentially telling them that the need to fix something (specifically: edit distutils, install mingw). With the proposed change, --compiler=mingw32 will produce a binary, but the binary will incorrectly depend on cygwin. They may not notice on their local system (since cygwin.dll is available), but only on customer systems.

That said: which of Roumen's patches (if any) would you recommend for inclusion?
