I'm trying to compile apache with mod_python and I'm getting the following 

[root at catatonia apache_1.3.12]# ./configure 
--activate-module=src/modules/extra/mod_python.c --prefix=/usr/local/apache

I have no directory /usr/lib/python1.5/config, though the parent of that 
dir does exist.  I just freshly installed python 1.5.2 before trying the 
above.  Platform is Red Hat Linux 6.2.  Any ideas?
