The patch fixes this. It also changes two other problems. First it raises an PlatformException if you try to use it with modules which contain compiled C-extensions. Distutils doesn't support crosscompiling.
Ooh, but wouldn't it be cool if I could compile Windows extensions on
and vice-versa... oh, never mind!
I remember having heard that it is possible to cross-compile the windows version of tcl on linux... Maybe someone with more experience than me on could find out?
It would be cool, but then you probably need special options for the compiler or may be a new cross-compiler class. (It would use different extensions than the standard unix compiler '.dll'<>'.so') Until someone has a solution for that, we should prevent users from creating installers that don't work. (Maybe we need then an option 'target_platform' for build_ext, this could then also be used to allow creation of the installer.)
