Problem solved. MinGW built the pyd files in C:\Zope-Instance\Products\TextIndexNG3\extension_modules\build\lib.win32-2.3\zopyx\txng3 , but for some reason the zopyx folder was not on the Python search path (under Windows). The fine manual (here http://www.python.org/doc/essays/packages.html and here http://docs.python.org/ref/import.html ) describes that Windows module search for import has differences from other operating systems.
One solution (not too elegant), is to move the zopyx folder into a folder that is being searched. I moved the zopyx folder to the site-packages folder. (Setting $PYTHONPATH to C:\Zope-Instance\Products\TextIndexNG3 might also have worked, or putting the right zopyx.pth file somewhere might have worked). By "solved" I mean the TextIndexNG3.1.5 configlet now appears in the Plone2.1.2 add/remove products page without any errors. And the event.log traceback errors have disappeared.
