[Distutils] OSF/1 glitch?

This was reported on the XML-SIG by Mark Favas, and looks like it
might be a Distutils problem.
The link step also appears to have a wildcard quoting problem. The ld
command used is:
ld -shared -expect_unresolved "*"
which works correctly if put into a /bin/sh script produces pyexpat.so
without warnings of unresolved externals (the -expect_unresolved "*"
pattern matches all). However, when run by Python via the "python
setup.py build" command, ld complains about all the unresolved
as if the pattern that ld is trying to match is literally "*"
Presumably the link step quotes the * for the sake of the shell, and
sysconfig.py doesn't know this, so it winds up passing "*" as the
