If you're curious as to the latest error with cygwin python + scons + msvc:

[12031:JavaScriptCore]% scons                                                  
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
scons: done reading SConscript files.
scons: Building targets ...
scons: *** Implicit dependency `\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
8/VC/bin/cl' not found, needed by target `API/JSBase.obj'.  Stop.
scons: building terminated because of errors.

Still working on the scons folks on getting past this one in a nice way.  Of
course the concern is that once we get past this, all the paths passed to
cl.exe will still be "wrong" and more hacks would be needed.  So for now, we're
cutting our losses and just driving scons via cmd + win32 python.  That at
least allows WebKit devs to us build-webkit --chromium from CYGWIN like normal,
and have it work.
