I see "cygdrive" in the paths. Are you using cygwin to compile PyQt? You 
shouldn't: you should use MinGW instead. Can you show me the output of your 
configure.py execution?

You probably need to arrange PATH. Try putting mingw\bin in the PATH before 
cygwin (or just remove cygwin altogether to make sure nothing in there is 
invoked). You can use the WHERE command in the CMD shell (under XP) to 
double-check (try "where make" and "where qmake" for instance).
