It may not help.  mod_python will always pick the first Python on your
$PATH, even when you use --with-python.  I've reported this before and
seen the behavior on every Linux box I've built on.  This with Apache

The trick is to hack your $PATH in Apache's bin/envvars script so that
it is sure to pick up the Python executable you want.
