locally, but something definitely seems to be wrong with this package on
the AppVeyor machine as Python just doesn't seem to be executable, e.g. the
output of these commands in our batch file driving the build:

Perhaps you need to provide the -g (--upgrade-also) flag to cygwin's setup.

Due to setup terribleness, without this flag, it will install the requested packages, and any missing dependencies of them, but not upgrade any of the dependencies which are already installed to the current (and perhaps needed) version...
