Yes, I've overruled it by setting NAN_PYTHON_VERSION=2.2 in my
environment. Now that nan_definitions.mk has a seperate windows section it
can be changed there. You can commit your changes to nan_definitions.mk if
you want.

I did have to recompile the cygwin python because the python that comes
with it had one unresolved symbol. You didn't run into that problem ?

I did a 

  ln -s libjpeg-static.a libjpeg.a

in $(NAN_JPEG)/lib/. We should probably move it to libjpeg.a in CVS and
change the MSVC files accordingly.

Is there any chance of getting some of the nice tuhopuu improvements into
this version of Blender ? Or getting tinderbox up and running for tuhopuu
? Recompiling the same sources over and over again is not really much of a
challenge. ;-)
