Hi,
I'm having a hard time getting python-mcrypt extension to build.
I installed libmcrypt with --prefix=/usr and I checked that the  
library exists

-rwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel    352K Sep 19 16:53 /usr/lib/libmcrypt. 
4.4.8.dylib*
lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel     21B Sep 19 16:53 /usr/lib/libmcrypt. 
4.dylib@ -> libmcrypt.4.4.8.dylib
lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel     21B Sep 19 16:53 /usr/lib/ 
libmcrypt.dylib@ -> libmcrypt.4.4.8.dylib
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel    801B Sep 19 16:53 /usr/lib/libmcrypt.la*

But this is the output from setting up python-mcrypt

# python setup.py build

lipo: can't open input file: /var/tmp//ccGRKjU2.out (No such file or  
directory)

What am I missing here? I linked PHP with the same libmcrypt library  
just fine. This is only happening for this extension only.

Would appreciate any help, thx
