python extension dynamic linking

I am writing Python extension in C++, in this extension I am using
methods from another Python extension. On Linux I am currently linking
my extension with used Python extension -- what is quite ugly.

gcc ... -lgdi

where gdi is a link to C++ extension imported by 'module'

I would like to avoid direct linking here.

import module # export some symbol used in my_module

import my_module

I realized that on Mac it is possible to dynamically link C++
extension using

-bundle -undefined dynamic_lookup

I wonder how to solve this problem on Linux or MS Window.

Thanks for any pointers... Martin
