Since my libgsl is installed in a nondefault location, I assume I need to add it to the library search path for the linker. I found -I for extending the include path but, following gcc, -L doesn't seem to extend the library path. Is there a way to do this from the %%cython magic?

It seems I forgot to add -L to the default options, though I'm not
sure (I just don't remember right now) if I looked into it and it
wasn't supported by the underlying distutils machinery or I simply
failed to look into it.

But it does support the -la/--link-args flag to pass extra flags to
the linker, try `-la -L/your/path` and see if that helps.



ps - obviously a PR adding -L to the default flags, if it works, would
be the ideal solution :)
