unfortunately the statement about win32 is mostly true. Although the setup
script does read the cfg it seems those values aren't used if it finds

Can you substitute with this one and see if it helps? The only difference is a
change to the way that inc_lib_dirs() is initialized it should put the cfg
values in the lists first. I haven't tested this so beware.
