The patch does not apply neither to current master nor to current stable
(most probably it depends on previous patches):

$ patch --dry-run -p1 < 0013-Configure-look-for-Java-in-the-registry-on-Windows.patch
checking file lib/
Hunk #1 FAILED at 330.
Hunk #2 succeeded at 403 (offset -14 lines).
Hunk #3 succeeded at 1923 (offset -94 lines).
1 out of 3 hunks FAILED

and I had to apply it manually. Before applying it, I took away java from
PATH and reconfigured:

checking for a java interpreter...
+checking for "java"...  no

Correctly, java was not found (it is found when it is in PATH).
Then I applied the patch an reconfigured again:

checking for a java interpreter...
+checking for "java"...  no
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\cygwin\win\python\lib\logging\", line 870, in emit
    stream.write(ufs % msg)
LookupError: unknown encoding: cp65001
Logged from file, line 346

I have a native Windows version of Python 2.7 installed in

So, it seems there is a problem with Python 2.
