With that hint and some googling for building extensions with MinGW I
found success. The problem as you correctly identified was I did not
have a libpython22.a. The standard python distribution does not ship with one.
So, I downloaded lib2def.py and replaced python15 with python22
everywhere (I can make a version of this script that does this
automagically if one doesn't already exist). Then I:
python lib2def.py python22.lib python22.def
dlltool --dllname python22.dll --def python22.def --output-lib libpython22.a
Then over in the PyReadline/src folder I can now:
I had to adjust the path because I have the cygwin stuff installed.
Thanks for your efforts on readline for windows.
