[New-bugs-announce] [issue2563] embed manifest in windows extensions

Mark Hammond report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Mark Hammond <mhammond at users.sourceforge.net>:

The move to vs2008 has caused .manifest files to be created next to
distutils created extensions modules, rather than being embedded as
recommended by Microsoft.

See http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms235591(VS.80).aspx

The attached patch achieves this by telling the compiler to generate the
manifest in the temp dir, them embeds that manifest using mt.exe

Adding Christian for comment (hopefully the correct Christian this time
  - sorry about that :)
