Here you also need --enable-so

I do not have any experience with HP-UX, but on other systems a similar
message indicates an old version of libtool, which wouldn't allow linking
shared and static libs together. So I'd first see if upgrading libtool
would help. After you upgrade, rebuild apache by first running
./buildconf like this:

./configure --prefix=/opt/apache2 --enable-so
make clean

Then for mod_python, do make clean; make
