Can anybody answer Charles' question for me? I've never dealt with this.

Hi Paul/Dean,

Do you know how to force disutil to pick up flags ?

I'm trying to build a C extension (DODS), and I need to tell it to use 
-z muldefs when building, but even when setting CFLAGS LDFLAGS and CC 
disutil ignore them flat.

WORSE it doesn't even remember that cc was cc -mt when building python 
(which by the way doesn't build out of the box on solaris with gcc..., 
which is why i'm stuck with cc...), well at least it remembers that it 
was cc :) !

Is there any way to put it in the setup.py file ?

Thanks for any help,
