I haven't had a chance to interpret this yet but doing this gives me a
different error, which does at look least a little more likely to be

/usr/local/apache2/build/libtool --silent --mode=link gcc -o mod_python.la
-I/usr/local/apache2/include -I/usr/local/include/python2.2  -rpath

libtool: link: cannot build libtool library `mod_python.la' from non-libtool
objects: /usr/local/lib/python2.2/config/libpython2.2.a
apxs:Error: Command failed with rc=65536

Now whether that's a MacOS X|OpenBSD thing that Python didn't use libtool
to build I don't currently know, but I'll try and look into it over the
next couple of days. If anyone has any clues, of course they'd be more than

Best wishes,
