It doesn't on OS X. But that's not even the issue. As I explained before,
the issue is that get_config_var('SO') is used to determine the extension of
system libraries (such as liblapack.so) and python-related ones (such as
multiarray.cpython-32m.so).  And the current functions don't do mindreading.

I removed the line in ctypeslib that was trying this, so I think you are not
testing my patch.
