I'm reorganizing the PyOpenGL source tree. I'd love to move to a distutils distribution process instead of my current complicated homegrown system. However, I'm not willing to do that without the ability to generate .so's simply on Unices (I can do the win32 portion, see below). Is anyone working on this? I'd hoped to have the distribution story moved along further by the time the ORA conference rolls around, but it's not looking likely.
Here's a dare: if someone does the Unix .c->.so->'simple installation' process, I'll do the win32 equivalent. My guess is that the first step is a pseudo-parse of the Makefile.pre.in file, no?
Once the compilation process is in place (even buggy), it makes it more likely for others to contribute snippets for e.g. RPM generation, etc.
