Now that you mention it, that does sound familiar ;) Nevertheless, when I
started trying to use the Distutils-0.8 distro to build my Python extension
under Windows it came up with numerous unresolved symbols (Python library
calls) until I used this modification to actually list python15.lib (or
python15_d.lib) on the link line.

I'll investigate this some more today to see if I can figure out what's
going wrong here.
