The only thing that needs to be done for mingw compatibility is to
build the import lib, right? It would be nice if the win32 python
shipped with that; it's only 37K gzipped.
I have a batch script to create libpython23.a, for those who are
interested. It requires pexports-0.42h from
extracted to C:\Program Files\pexports-0.42h, and of course mingw.
Your paths may vary...
copy c:\windows\system32\python23.dll .
c:\progra~1\pexports-0.42h\bin\pexports python23.dll > python23.def
c:\MinGW\bin\dlltool --dllname python23.dll --def python23.def --output-lib libpython23.a
copy libpython23.a c:\python23\libs
