I'm afraid I can't, for Python extensions most of the work is done by
distutils. But I believe that some extension projects (some of the
scientific Python stack) do this. As noted by mathog, though,
distutils forces -lmsvcr90, which avoids most, if not all, of the CRT
incompatibility issues - something I'd forgotten, it's been a long
time since I did anything with the distutils mingw support..
