[mod_python] Mod_python compilation question, per your's comment on "What Powers Curse"

Graham or other mod_python gurus on the m-list:

I tried to verify our mod_python compilation/installation is indeed  
correct after I read the comment <http://www.davidcramer.net/curse/44/ 
what-powers-curse.html#comment-9271>, especially this part:
As a reference point for discussion a correctly compiled Python/ 
mod_python should only result in an Apache mod_python.so loadable  
module of at most about 400 kilobytes.

Unfortunately, ours mod_python.so is 1.3M in size:
# ls -lh /usr/lib64/apache2/modules/mod_python.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1.3M 2007-04-26 08:42 /usr/lib64/apache2/ 

Since our Linux box is running Gentoo 2006.1, we do have the shared  
library for Python:
# ls -l /usr/lib/libpython2.4.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 2007-05-28 17:24 /usr/lib/libpython2.4.so - 
 > libpython2.4.so.1.0
# ls -l /usr/lib/libpython2.4.so.1.0
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 1073360 2007-05-28 17:24 /usr/lib/ 

Currently I have no idea why it doesn't use the shared library for  
# ldd /usr/lib64/apache2/modules/mod_python.so
         libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x00002aaef9109000)
         libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00002aaef9223000)
         libutil.so.1 => /lib/libutil.so.1 (0x00002aaef9327000)
         libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x00002aaef942b000)
         libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x00002aaef9580000)
         /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x0000555555554000)

Our mod_python compilation log file is attached for your reference.  
Any pointer or hint is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
