New submission from Zach Welch:

I tried to link a program against the libpython27.a provided by the latest 2.7.9 amd64 installer, only to discover that the provided library is a 32-bit version.  I had to go through the gendef/dlltool dance in order to produce a useable 64-bit library from the DLL.
