It depends on what system and build tools that you are using and that 
the Python you are using was built with but, in general on most 
POSIX-like systems, one way to do it should be to supply it via an 
LDFLAGS environment variable.  The safest approach would be to get the 
default value of LDFLAGS for this Python instance, append your 
additional values to it, and pass it back into the setup.py build.  You 
can do that all in one line:

LDFLAGS="$(python -c 'import 
sysconfig;print(sysconfig.get_config_var("LDFLAGS"))') 
-Wl,--allow-shlib-undefined" python setup.py build
