Compiling PIL 1.6 for Cygwin and Python 2.5

This thread has moved to my new site here:

I'm not sure if this is still relevant today, but I had written this on my blog last year so I may find it useful again in the future, I was trying to compile PIL 1.6 to use with my Cygwin-installed python at work and had to do this:

rebase -b 0x1000000000 /bin/tk84.dll

python build_ext -i


python install

After that, PIL built and installed just fine.
