[Python-Dev] --enabled-shared broken on freebsd5?

I think this problem probably needs to move over to distutils-sig, as
it doesn't seem to be specific to the way that Python itself uses
distutils.  distutils.command.build_ext tests for Py_ENABLE_SHARED on
linux and solaris and automatically adds '.' to the library_dirs, and
I suspect it just needs to do this on FreeBSD as well (adding bsd to
the list of platforms for which this is performed "solves" the
problem, but I don't pretend to know enough about either distutils or
freebsd to determine if this is the correct solution).
