[mod_python] Problems compiling mod_python

Hello, I am running Fedora Core 2, Apache 2.0.51, Python 2.3.4, and I'm
trying to compile and install mod_python 3.1.3.
Note these are not RPMs and were compiled from source, so it's not a
question of having the sources.
When I try to make install mod python, I get the following errors at the

Performing DSO installation.
/usr/bin/install -c -d /usr/local/apache/modules
/usr/bin/install -c src/mod_python.so /usr/local/apache/modules
/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `src/mod_python.so': No such file or
make[1]: *** [install_dso] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/robert/mod_python-3.1.3'
make: *** [install] Error 2

I'm not sure if this is fairly common, or what I should do. Someone
I've tried following the directions on
to no avail... 
What do you recommend I do? I don't know why it would fail while
compiling the .so...
P.S. -- I was root the entire time; I think you don't have to be / are
not supposed to be until you do make install... could this be why?
