I disagree. The fact that you can't regenerate the C file should not

Now you need to understand why your make didn't found it in $(srcdir)
that's where the problem is !

Yes, I know I have the file here too, I don't know why gentest.py is
called.  It is probably a libtool / automake feature;)

  There is two things:
    1/ make may come to the rule that regeneration is needed, for example
       if it find the timestamp of gentest.py older than testapi.c one,
       that's normal, but will fail in a variety of situation.
    2/ whether regeneration was possible or not it should build using

 Maybe the 

  testapi.c: gentest.py doc/libxml2-api.xml

lines in Makefile.am should really be rewritten

  $(srcdir)/testapi.c: $(srcdir)/gentest.py $(srcdir)/doc/libxml2-api.xml
      -@(if [ "$(PYTHON)" != "" ] ; then cd $(srcdir) $(PYTHON) gentest.py ; fi )

this may be worth trying on your side.

This is actually working, I have released a cygwin verion now.
BTW, there was a bug discovered in xmlcatalog from libxml2-2.6.13,
<group> tags in the catalog were deleted when running it on a catalog
file including <group> tags.
