python and lib/python2.?/config

Why do the python files include the line:

BUILDLINK_LIBDIRS.python2?+=    lib/python2.?/config

This has the effect that various python libraries are linked to the 
static version of libpython2.?.a found in 
/usr/pkg/lib/python2.?/config rather than the shared library found at 

I tripped over this, as on ArchLinux any "import gconf" (from 
py26-gnome2) would segfault when site-packages/gtk-2.0/ was 
built via pkgsrc but not if built outside pkgsrc or with pkgsrc but 
the above line removed from python26/
