The new setup.py uses the mysql_config external program
for determining libraries and other items needed for
compiling client programs. Sadly (for Windows users),
this is a shell script and seems to not be included
with the Windows installation of MySQL-4.1. I will
probably have to add a separate configuration section
for Windows similar to that in 1.1.8 and earlier, but I
am open to suggestions. I have been told by people who
have made Windows packaging that setup.py needed to be
patched anyway, but I have never had specifics on what
the problem might be.
