[Python-Dev] building python with profiling support

I've used gprof to profile the interpreter in the past, but I'm stuck
trying to it again on my current machine. I configured Python by saying
CC="gcc -pg" ../configure
That's the way I've built Python for profiling in the past and that's
what the README says to do. The python binary that gets generated
doesn't generate a gmon.out file.
It appears that the problem is with the command used to generate the
actual Python executable:
c++ -pthread -Xlinker -export-dynamic -o python \
libpython2.4.a -lpthread -ldl -lutil -lm
The -pg flag has been lost.
Can anyone suggest a recipe that will work? Or suggest how to modify
the Makefile so that the -pg flag gets passed along.
