I recently installed it on 12.1, but used the trunk instead. As an
ordinary user, follow these steps (use a different build directory, if
you wish):

 mkdir -p ~/src/mod_python
 cd ~/src/mod_python/
 svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/quetzalcoatl/mod_python/trunk
 cd mod_python-trunk/
 ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs
 su -c "make install"
 cd test/
 python test.py

On a stock Slackware 12.1, this should work without any problems and
there should be no errors during the tests.
