FreeBSD Port: py24-ctypes-

   I've been trying to use the ctype module in a software, but it fails with
the following traceback:

from ctypes import SetPointerType, RTLD_GLOBAL
   exceptions.ImportError: cannot import name RTLD_GLOBAL

   Based on the info in this mail thread (,
the flag RTLD_GLOBAL isn't implemented in freebsd yet, so I believe the port
should provide a workaround to it.

   Thanks in advance;
