It's necessary to bundle the external library with the wheel.
On linux, this is what the manylinux tag is all about (see PEP 513 & 571) and the auditwheel tool (https://github.com/pypa/auditwheel) will bundle the library into the wheel.
On OS X and Windows, I'm less familiar with the toolchain but the same principle applies.
Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately as you say, it only applies to Linux.
So how do projects in practice deal with this in a cross-platform way? Does every package need to reinvent the "wheel"?
