digitalmars.D.learn - celerid and cygwin

I almost have celerid building extension modules with dmd under cygwin. 
The issue now is linking to python. With normal windows, it's easy 
enough to convert libs/pythonXY.lib to OMF. With cygwin, we have 
/usr/lib/pythonX.Y/config/pythonX.Y.dll.a. Don't know what to do with that.

My brainstorms were

1) use cygwin's ld. This might work if it supports coff and I can find a 
way to convert omf object files to coff object files

2) screw cygwin. who uses it anyways? (other than me, because I can't 
stand the windows command prompt)
