I haven't had a chance to try this on the latest mod_python, but the problem
certainly used to be that Apache (2.0.33/2.0.44) ships with a version of
libtool which could charitably be described as brain dead. Install libtool
from ports, then overwrite Apache's version of libtool "cp
/usr/local/bin/libtool /usr/local/apache2/build" [or wherever your Apache 2

I've been doing a fairly substantial amount of mod_python work under OpenBSD
and, once installed, it's as stable as a rock.

Best wishes,
