The patch from 1.32 to 1.33 of file
removes some special actions for AIX and BeOS
concerning the paths to the linker scripts.

On Python 1.5.2 these parts are still needed, 
because it doesn't have this new style of Makefile

The old version (1.5.2) has no BLDSHARED so if is not
found you could execute the old code to stay

Or you declare that Distutils is not suited for
versions <2.X.

Error message (PyOpenGL build):

Greg, you're the distutils guru...

It's too early to drop 1.5.2 support.  (When that's done, 
the Distutils version will probably be bumped to 1.1.)

I've attached a patch that brings back the old code.
With this patch, does it work with 1.5.2 again

Rene, can you please try this patch, and confirm whether 
or not it works for you?   If so, I'll check it in.

It works for me. 
No problems building the lastest versions of Numerical 
Python or PyOpenGL with this patch.
