May be configure has to block user if both are enabled.

Reading the code (distutils), comments configure script we may get some

From configure (line about 1600) :
AC_DEFINE_UNQUOTED(SHLIB_EXT, "$SO", [Define this to be extension of
shared libraries (including the dot!).])
Actually this is suffix for python module (as example for windows ".pyd"
or "_d.pyd")

If SO is changed by to .dylib for OS X in configure above line will
define SHLIB_EXT to ".dylib" in "pyconfig.h". 

Ronald, you patch restore indirectly shared_lib_extension (distutils) to
".so", but define SHLIB_EXT from "pyconfig.h" will be ".dylib". This may
impact other projects.
