I'm trying to use this patch to cross-compile Python under
Fedora, using the Fedora-MinGW project
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/MinGW)

IMHO the documentation is confusing.  It sounds from the
docs like CC_FOR_BUILD should be the native system
compiler -- eg. all the examples show CC_FOR_BUILD=gcc

But I didn't get very far at all doing that.  It seems that
what you mean is CC_FOR_BUILD=i686-pc-mingw32-gcc (ie. the
cross-compiler).

Also the extra patches added by lkcl are necessary to get
posixmodules.c to compile.  I'm trying 2.5.2 at the moment,
and while I haven't succeeded getting it all compiled yet,
it's very definitely necessary to fix posixmodules.c
