Any Python version seems to exhibit this behavior at build
time (1.5 through 2.1.x at least).
If I put a line (which I understand to be valid) like:
-L/my/tcl/lib -Xlinker -rpath /my/tcl/lib \
in Modules/Setup, then the makesetup script fails when it
hits the second '/foo' and says it's a 'bad word'.
If I add a special case in makesetup at around line 137 like
/*) libs="$libs $arg"; skip=libs;;
it works fine and Python + Modules compile fine.
What's up with that? I'm surprised that this has not been
crossed/fixed yet and it makes me think, against all instinct
in this case, that I am doing something wrong. That's a very
common gcc+ld convention to use... (-Xlinker -rpath /foo)
