Recompile Python without threads.
cd /usr/local/ports/python
make deinstall
make config
uncheck threads and -->OK
make reinstall

THen you will prolly have  to deinstall reinstall mod_python and 
reuncomment it in httpd.conf.  THen restart apache2. 
mod_python.publisher should work then.

Unfortunatley I need/want to use mpServlets 
  but it fails on not being able to find module thread...  Any ideas on 
how to chase it down??

I don't know where it stems but trac and plone/zope run fine with 
threads compiled  even with huge stack.  Only fail I have seen is w/ mp. 
  Still a nice mod though.
