Distutils ignores the LDFLAGS variable in the Python
Makefile. This is bad, since LDFLAGS typically contains
the -L linker flag telling the linker where to look for
extra libraries.

A possible patch is attached (if the checkbox works
this time :-)

I think this is incorrect: LDFLAGS should *not* be used by
distutils. Instead, LDSHARED should incorporate LDFLAGS
where needed. Atleast that is what is done on a number of
platforms (*BSD, Darwin, ...). If your proposed route is
taken, these incorporations would need to be undone, AFAICT.

This solution is fine with me.
