Does anyone know which compiler/linker options have to be specified to make frozen Python interpreters correctly import shared modules ?
LINKFORSHARED should be the right set of options.
Thanks for the hint: freeze.py generates a Makefile which doesn't use this symbol for linking. Adding it by hand fixes this problem.
I'll checkin a fix for it.
Many of the mxCGIPython are running into this problem (the default settings in Python or freeze seem to be wrong on this account) and it got even worse with Python 2.2 where even the standard modules are built shared rather than statically linked.
Yes, building all extension modules as shared libraries is evil for freezing applications. I wish Linux distributors would recognize this and write proper Setup files, instead of relying on the default mechanism.
mxCGIPython comes with its own Modules/Setup file, so the problem is slightly less important.
I agree though that at least the standard modules which don't require additional setup.py configuration should be turned on again per default in Modules/Setup.
