If python is installed into a symlink'ed directory, the variables
"sys.exec_prefix" and "sys.executable" can contain different paths.
Therefore, the respective test in fails (line 202)
and a wrong library search directory (-L.) is set.

The attached patch fixes this issue, by using os.path.samefile() instead
of the string comparison to see whether two files are identical
irrespective of their paths.
