New changeset 92f90242994652d6b7afe0a2c8a61cf2bccc8c32 by Ned Deily (Miss Islington (bot)) in branch '3.7':
bpo-35257: fix broken BLDSHARED - needs LDFLAGS too (GH-11297)

Since Ned pushed a new fix, I ran again my tests on the 3.7 branch with ./configure CC=clang --with-lto --prefix /opt/py37 --enable-shared:

(1) 4 => ok
(2) 0, False => ok
(3) 0 => ok

Good! It works (in my tests).


"make sharedmods" runs "LDSHARED=$BLDSHARED (...) ./python build"

"make libpython(...)" uses $(BLDSHARED) to link libpython.

Modules/makesetup uses BLDSHARED to build C extensions of the stdlib. Example from generated Makefile:

"Modules/posix$(EXT_SUFFIX): Modules/posixmodule.o; $(BLDSHARED) Modules/posixmodule.o -o Modules/posix$(EXT_SUFFIX) (...)"

distutils has a customize_compiler() function which uses LDSHARED from Makefile (can be overriden by environment variables): it doesn't use BLDSHARED.

It seems like BLDSHARED is only used to build Python itself and stdlib modules. So I agree that it's ok to add PY_LDFLAGS_NODIST flags to BLDSHARED.
