I don't think distutils supports linking applications that embed
Python, yet. It might be possible to write a distutils command for
that purpose, but I'd advise against that.

Instead, you should integrate the Python embedding into the build
process you alread have (e.g. make, shell scripts, whatever). You
can simplify the process by having a Python script compute all
the necessary parameters. You find the configuration-specific
information in distutils.sysconfig.
