For Python, by default Squish links against the shared Python library.
On Mac OS X it is possible to build Python either as a framework (which produces a shared Python library), or not as a framework (in which case, up to Python 2.5.1 you will always get a static library).
The framework case is straightforward, but if you don’t use a framework then the situation is slightly tricky because Squish will need to dynamically link against a static Python library. This can be done by making sure that the static Python library is compiled using the
To specify this option for Python, you can set the
BASECFLAGS environment variable before configuring Python:
BASECFLAGS="-fno-common" ./configure --prefix ...
