I really meant what I said about the directory name: "libs" because
appears on the command line.

...although I *should* have said "python24.lib" instead of python24.dll

Okay, I'm not sure what this indicates. It's the right directory and
the right file is there. All I can do at this point is ask you to
investigate more closely. Can you find symbols like
__imp__PyImport_AppendInittab in that file? Can you manually
replicate the test command and ask the linker to be verbose and tell
us the exact path of the .lib file it finds? These are just examples;
you can probably think of more.
