SWIG, MinGW, and Python 2.3 problem

P: n/a
I'm attempting to follow the instructions at, without luck.

I have Python 2.3, MinGW 3.2.3, ans SWIG 1.3.19.

I get an export error on "initexample" when attempting the example. Do
I need some extra switches to get SWIG to create that function? Or is
it something else?

Here's my example build:
C:\Phil\python\Extensions\example>python build
running build
running build_ext
building 'example' extension
swigging example.i to example_wrap.c
C:\Phil\python\Extensions\SWIG-1.3.19\swig.exe -python -o
