It appears that metagrammar.o is not needed in the Python executable,
that's why the linker does not fetch it from the library when building

As for pgen, the first question would be why you need metagrammar.o in
your extension module. Assuming there is a good reason to expose it,
you should arrange to

1. exclude metagrammar.o from libpython.a,
2. include it explicitly into as a source for building the pgen module.
