[mod_python] mod_python on AIX

Has anyone been successful at building mod_python support on AIX? It
worked at one time but now on Apache 1.3.27, Python 2.1 and the
latest mod_python I have been unable to get it to run without
httpd core dumping when handling a request (running the mptest.py
program). Python/http calls out to load the stropmodule which gets loaded
as a shared library and then stop calls back to Py_InitModule4().
But it looks like it is trying to jump to an address in the shared
library instead of resolving Py_InitModule4 in libpython2.1.a.
I've had the same problem on both AIX 4.3.3 and 5.1.

If you've been successful at getting mod_python working with any
combination of software on AIX I'd sure like to find out what the trick

Thanks, John
