I tried to compile the wincairo version.

Brent has fixed the WinCairoRequirements problem. Thanks for that!

But during the compile of WebCore, I get the following error stack:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/python2.7/site.py", line 563, in <module>
   File "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/python2.7/site.py", line 545, in main
     known_paths = addusersitepackages(known_paths)
   File "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/python2.7/site.py", line 278, in 
     user_site = getusersitepackages()
   File "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/python2.7/site.py", line 253, in 
     user_base = getuserbase() # this will also set USER_BASE
   File "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/python2.7/site.py", line 243, in getuserbase
     USER_BASE = get_config_var('userbase')
   File "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/python2.7/sysconfig.py", line 521, in 
     return get_config_vars().get(name)
   File "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/python2.7/sysconfig.py", line 420, in 
   File "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/python2.7/sysconfig.py", line 299, in 
     raise IOError(msg)
IOError: invalid Python installation: unable to open 
/cygdrive/c/cygwin/include/python2.7/pyconfig.h (No such file or directory)

My build machine is relatively new installed with the cygwin installer. 
Is there something missing for python?

Thanks for any help
