The FAQ is on the web page:

Exact details depend on your installation.  In _theory_, no environment
variables should be needed.  In _practice_, especially when there are multiple 
python installations or if the compile host has different paths to the run 
host, some fiddling is sometimes needed.  

I'm not an OS-X user (boss won't buy me an I-Mac :<) so I'm not sure what would
be needed in that environment, but running ldd on the mod_python.so might be
instructive.  Or (as the FAQ suggests) running apache under truss to see what 
files it tries (and fails) to open just before it quits.
