Don't use -flat_namespace. Search the pythonmac SIG archives if you want a more elaborate rant :-).
Ok, I won't. I was just guessing based on what I'd seen elsewhere.
Is it possible to create libBase portably with distutils? It's possible to do it on Linux by subclassing build_ext.build_ext and explicitly using self.compiler.compile() and self.compiler.link_shared_lib() to build the shared library before calling build_ext.build_ext.build_extensions(). But the same thing on Mac OS X only creates libBase.so, whereas I need it to create libBase.dylib.
I don't know if this is possible, although I'd guess it is not.
That's too bad. Is there a reason for it? I'd volunteer to work on modifying distutils so that it can build a .dylib, but I am not an expert on library formats. I don't really know the difference between a .so and a .dylib, except that one of them works and the other doesn't. Can someone point me in the direction of a good reference on the topic?
