The x86 CMake build now completes :-)

The x64 build is failing due to the lack of an acceptable Python and some dumpcap link errors.

The machine has the official Python 2.6 installed in c:\Python26 and
Cygwin's Python 2.7 installed in c:\cygwin\usr\bin. According to


CMake looks for numbered Pythons executables (python2.7, python2.6, ...)
before looking for the plain executable. In our case this means it's
finding Cygwin's Python before the official version. The version
detection then fails for some reason. I'm going to try installing the
official Python 2.7. Hopefully it will be found before Cygwin's.
