OK, further info on the testing on win32...
You can't test off a shared network drive on Windows! Apache will refuse 
to start up at all! (Interestingly, it will run if you run without the 
-k start, but not with it - and no error messages are generated...)
Also, you can't simply have compiled mod_python, you need to have 
installed it...
Once that was sorted out, I got the following errors (I have included 
relevant messages from the log files):
* Testing req.requires()

(this is not surprising as I haven't yet got mod_python.psp building...)

I'll work on the remaining issues...
