[Python-Dev] MacOSX -framework options and distutils weirdness

A while back I wrote about a problem I was having with
the ordering of -framework options in distutils compilation
commands. Well, now I've discovered something even stranger.

When distutils executes the following link command, I get
a bunch of undefined OpenGL-related symbols. But if I
copy and paste *exactly the same command* into the shell,
it succeeds!

What could possibly be going on here?

gcc -Wl,-F. -bundle -framework Python
build/temp.darwin-8.4.0-Power_Macintosh-2.3/chunk.o -L/usr/lib -L/usr/local/lib
-L/usr/X11R6/lib -lm -lGLEW -lfreetype -lcal3d -lstdc++ -lode -o
build/lib.darwin-8.4.0-Power_Macintosh-2.3/soya/_soya.so -framework OpenGL
-framework SDL -framework OpenAL

This is on MacOSX 10.4 with Python 2.3.
