Hi Vladimir, thank you for your help, but there is still another noob
question I'd like to ask.

When I linking boost::python the link complain can't link to python's dll file.
then I follow the instruction on ""
to generate a import lib called "libpython25.a" from the python25.dll using
pexports and dlltool., and the linking problem is solved.

I noticed that it's claimed that the recent mingw version could
linking directly to
dll without generate import lib, is it possible to config the build system
link to python25.dll directly?
