and here is a fourth easier other way: fiddle with Pyrex itself:
change staticforward to extern in line 169 of Nodes.py

C:\sw\pyrex\Pyrex-0.8.2\Pyrex\Compiler>grep -n staticforward *.py
Nodes.py:169:    code.putln('staticforward char *%s[];' %
Naming.filetable_cname)
Nodes.py:263:        code.putln("staticforward PyTypeObject %s;" %
name)
