python-config is usally not used by python module builds, but third party build 
systems. When cross-building these packages you usually are unable to run the 
python interpreter for the target.

Georg, Martin, do you have any opinion if we should replace the python code 
with shell code (if it works on all targets), or if it should be added as a 
separate script?

Ray, some issues:

 - is `local' available in all shells? just avoid it.

 - is there a need for the built vs. installed prefix?
   this is logic not found in the python implementation.
   what is this supposed to do?

 - LDLIBRARY and LDSHARED are expressed in terms of Makefile
   macros, leading to syntax errors.

 - --includes doesn't include the plat specific include dir

 - abi flags are missing from the include and lib dirs.

Please recheck, and compare the output of the python implementation with the 
one of the shell implementation.
