The issue, at least for me, is that the file isn't necessarily called
'config' anymore.  I have


because of some shared object ABI tagging system they introduced.
(/usr/lib/python3.2/config is a symlink to that, as a transition
measure, I guess.)

LIBPL exists at least as far back as Python 2.2, so its use should be

Yes, because get_config_vars('LDVERSION') doesn't exist in that version.
In theory, it would return '2.7', so everything would fit back together,
but LDVERSION doesn't exist before 3.2.

Analogously to the point above, the result on my system should be

-L something -lpython3.2mu

And that's what I get.

The claim is that on the ActiveState installation, this doesn't work
out, but we need to see some details here, I guess.
