Problems building GnurRadio under Cygwin

I am attempting to build GnuRadio under Cygwin to work with a
development board and am having mixed results. I followed the
instructions to build under Cygwin and generally it went fine. Then I
attempted to compile the block for the interface to the development
board. This was having trouble finding the gnuradio-core. I then ran
./bootstrap to get the libraries set up properly for the block . This
again failed initially with the error related to aclocal.m4 Following,
guidance from other posts, I deleted this after the ./bootstrap and then
ran ./configure and make. make failed with a number of unresolved
environment variables relating to …_CXX.

As a result, back to the drawing board, with the block installed in the
gnuradio directory with the others, I attempted ./bootstrap to rebuild
the makefiles and rebuild gnuradio. It appears as I have now corrupted
the original version in that it will no longer build as it cannot
use/compile Python.h - configure follows below. Any suggestions as to
how to get gnuradio build and have the additional block actually find
the files would be appreciated.

Thanks,
