basic type creation (C->python)

I was going through the "noddy" example of creating a new type for python and
ran into some difficulties.

Everything seems to compile ok (I use "python build"), but when I run
python and attempt to import noddy, I get this:

[landshark at burrito ~/pytype/build/lib.linux-i686-1.5]$ python
Python 1.5.2 (#1, Apr  3 2002, 18:16:26)  [GCC 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.2
2 on linux-i386

>>> import noddy
Traceback (innermost last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: ./ undefined symbol: PyObject_Del

Just as it says, and nm on the file shows all Py* methods as
undefined.  I'm assuming this is normal since they are in the python
executable... but how do I get around this so I can use the new type?
