Embeding python with mingw on win32 and python 2.4.4

I'm bringing up an old story once more! I'm on win32 (winxp sp2)
python 2.4.4. mingw gcc version is 3.4.5. msys is in c:\msys. mingw is
in c:\mingw and python is in c:\pyton24. there is also python24.lib
and libpython24.a in c:\python24\libs.
when I try to compile this sample code [1] from with command [2] in
msys shell I get the results [3].
this subject was discussed a few times over these years and I tried
everything in the posts and forums that I found and google could
translate with no success. I realy need your suggestion!

Regards, Mani
[1] Sample code:


int main(int argc, char *argv[])
PyRun_SimpleString("from time import time,ctime\n"
"print 'Today is',ctime(time())\n");
return 0;

[2] Command:
$ g++ -I/c/python24/include -I/c/MinGW/include -L/c/python24/libs -L/c/
mingw/lib -lpython24 -shared -mwin32 -o p1 p1.o

[3] Results:
p1.o:p1.cpp:(.text+0x2b): undefined reference to `_imp__Py_Initialize'
p1.o:p1.cpp:(.text+0x39): undefined reference to
p1.o:p1.cpp:(.text+0x40): undefined reference to `_imp__Py_Finalize'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
