I figured out a "solution" to the problem in my original post.  For
compleness, I'll summarize here.

First off, I'd written a couple of simple extensions for python in a
linux environment, and wasn't really having any problems.  I'd like to
port my existing stuff over to Dos and ensure that all of my future
stuff will work on any platform, etc, and so I came across PythonD +
DJGPP.  The problem was that I couldn't get the simplest thing to
compile.  I'd alway get the following:

C:\EOL_P\test>python.exe build

running build
running build_ext
building 'spam' extension
c:\djgpp\bin/gcc.exe -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -DGLUT_IMPORT_LIB -Ic:/pythond/include/python2.4 -c
spam.c -o build/
In file included from c:/pythond/include/python2.4/Python.h:55,
                 from spam.c:1:
c:/pythond/include/python2.4/pyport.h:116:24: error: sys/select.h: No
such file or directory (ENOENT)
spam.c:27:2: warning: no newline at end of file
error: command 'gcc.exe' failed with exit status 1

The "solution" was to go to pyport.h and comment out the line to
include sys/select.h.  Now I can get my basic "hello extension"
extension to work.

In an unrelated topic, I tried to download PythonD 2.2.1 R2.1(Final)
11.10.2003 and it would only get ~4MB of the file, when it should have
been 5.7megs.  Looks like the file has been corrupted. FYI.
