Most likely you have LDFLAGS defined in your environment, which screws
up the build. LDFLAGS (and other similar variables) do not work as
expected with distutils, they *override* the options instead of
completing them.

The actual error is that the link step is missing the -shared option,
hence the missing errors, as the linker tries to build an executable.
