As your goal is to figure out the suffix (extension), you can ask python
for that directly, since python clearly needs to know what filenames to
look for when importing modules.
LIBEXT=`$PYTHON -c "from distutils import sysconfig; print
sysconfig.get_config_var('SO')" | tr -d "\r"`
...is what I do in my configure.ac script.
