[mod_python] compiling on solaris 9?

I have built apache2.2.4 and python2.5. from source, with some tweaks as outlined in some previous emails, i.e. build shared (some relevant snipped bits below).

When I try and compile mod_python now I have a similar problem to what is outlined at:


i.e. lots of 'ld: fatal: relocations remain against allocatable but non-writable sections'

Here is a fuller output:

ar -x `gcc -print-libgcc-file-name` _eprintf.o
ar -x `gcc -print-libgcc-file-name` _floatdidf.o
ar -x `gcc -print-libgcc-file-name` _muldi3.o

Compiling for DSO.

...lots more like above unknown symbol, ending with

Current working directory /files/app/modpython/mod_python-3.3.1/src
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `do_dso'

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I might look for/try? 
The real unix admins are not available at the moment and I'm bruising my head. 

Note that I seemed to have a similar problem with apache2 build seeing the static libs and not the shared libs at first that was apparently caused by some incorrect some symbolic links. Without knowing any better it almost looks to me like it is not seeing /usr/local/lib/python2.5/config/libpython2.5.a as a shared lib or something like that, but what do I know.
