GCC (actually, most compilers I think) allows you to
specify -L, -I and -R multiple times.  In contrast,
distutils expects on of them with a colon-separated
list of directories.  It only pays attention to the
last one of any of those three flags.  I've been bitten
by this difference a couple times in recent weeks.

It seems that distutils should warn when any of these
flags are given multiple times or (better yet) should
conform more to common compiler usage and allow them to
be given multiple times, collecting all values together
in a list.
