Here is a list (in-progress) of the things needs to get Sage to build (and pass most tests) on Cygwin:

  • #8257: gd needs a better version of expr
  • #7321: numpy fails to build on cygwin due to not using the correct fortran compiler
  • Add cephes spkg for Cygwin (provides complex.h amongst other things)
  • Python should be build with enable-shared
  • Pynac needs to use a function pointer table.
  • NTL get the Sage library to link to libntl.dll instead of libntl.a
  • #8642: port detection for the notebook does not work in Cygwin

Possible issue with Python 2.6:
