Question about python 3.2 distutils

I have a question about python 3.2 distutils on a Gentoo amd64 system.
When I open an ipython session and import distutils.unixcompiler and
then check the shared library extension with
UnixCCompiler.shared)lib_extension, it returns '.so', as I would
expect. When I run a setup.py in an unofficial PIL source that should
work with python 3.2 and step into it, I hit the line:
find_library_file(self, "tcl" + version):
feature.tcl = "tcl"+TCL_VERSION
self is: <__main__.pil_build_ext object at 0xf44510>
def find_library_file(self, library):
self.compiler is <distutils.unixccompiler.UnixCCompiler object at
library is: 'tcl8.5'
when I check the shared_lib_extension it returns '.cpython-32.so' - not
This is causing a problem because, for example, I have libtcl8.5.so, but
it is looking for libtcl8.5.cpython-32.so.
Where is this shared lib extension being determined? After all, in an
interactive session, it is just looking for .so, but in the script, it
is looking for .cpython-32.so. I tried grep -R cpython-32 * in the top
level directory of ther PIL source I am using, thinking it may be
ovridden or set somewhere, but it turns up empty. Can anyone tell me
what the difference is? I posted earlier, but I just noticed this
difference between interactive session and script.
