Ah, this is why your 'Python.h' is not including 'stackless.h'.
Because the Stackless version of 'Python.h' is not included in the zip
file.  It is a bad idea to compile against this.  I've never tested it
and the include files were only included as an afterthought.

People have compiled using mingw before.  I have.  I would expect it
to hit the case:
#elif defined(__GNUC__) && defined(__i386__)

Get the source code (preferably from the release25-maint branch) in
SVN, and compile that, run the Stackless unit tests to ensure that the
Stackless extension got compiled in, then compile against it.
