My extension (apsw) builds and runs just fine on Linux, Mac and Windows
for Python 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5.  For Linux and Mac Python 2.6 beta 1 and
Python 3.0 beta 1 also work just fine.  However on Windows using MinGW
and Python 2.6 beta 1 and Python 3.0 beta 1 the pyd fails to load
claiming the "specified procedure cannot be found".  The compile/link is
just fine and pexports shows the procedure is present.  

# Compile lines

# Running

# Pexports
C:\apsw>pexports build\lib.win32-2.6\apsw.pyd

When using Python 3.0 things are substantially the same except the init
function is PyInit_apsw.

MinGW was installed using the default configuration with the automated
installer  The
libmsvcr90.a is part of MinGW found in c:\MinGW\lib
