I think, I'm almost there. I have a static libsasl and several static
plugin libs, but when I try to link one of the plugins with
_ldap.pyd, I get:

e:\projects\prereq\built\cyrus-sasl\lib\sasl2\libcrammd5.a(plugin_common.o):
In function `plug_ipfromstring':
e:/projects/prereq/src/cyrus-sasl-2.1.23/plugins/plugin_common.c:150:
e:/projects/prereq/src/cyrus-sasl-2.1.23/plugins/plugin_common.c:157:
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

Should be a matter of proper includes. I'll track that down tomorrow...

Regards,
Torsten
