New submission from David Taylor:

Misc/python-config.in returns a bad library order when given the --ldflags or --libs arguments.  A library should be listed *BEFORE* those libraries that it depends upon.  The python library depends upon all the other libraries listed, but it is listed last -- it should be first.

When linking with shared libraries, you can generally get away with the current behaviour.  When linking with static libraries, it fails
