I tried to install the CVS version of Biopython with Cygwin and with 
Windows. On Cygwin, I don't get any errors. On Windows, I am still 
getting the error with EUtils\DTDs. It wasn't clear to me from CVS if 
the fix for this error has been committed yet, so maybe I should just 
try again later.


$ /cygdrive/c/Python23/python setup.py bdist_wininst
error: build\bdist.win32\wininst\PURELIB\Bio\EUtils\DTDs: No such file 
or directory
