When installing Python from sources, "make install" installs the files
in $prefix/lib/python2.2/lib-dynload/ with bad permissions (even though
permissions for everything else are fine).  I have to manually fix
them every time I (re)compile Python.  When I forget to fix them, the
error message that I am seeing is exactly:

      [Mon Feb 03 21:34:15 2003] [error] make_obcallback: could not
      import mod_python.apache.

Perhaps this is what was causing the grief for the original poster,
since it looks awfully similar to the subject line of this thread.
