Michael F.: It sounds like you have three separate but related problems:

1. Confusion between LDSHARED and BLDSHARED referring to the in-source build tree vs final installed files. I think this is what David and Michael H. were originally trying to fix here.

2. Only BLDSHARED has an extra -L flag. Where is the code that adds it? I can’t find it in in either Python 3 or 2 versions.

3. BLDSHARED also fails to work for out-of-tree builds, because it refers to the build tree (.) rather than the source tree. This sounds like another bug to me; do you want to make a patch?
