I am using...

   Apache 1.3
   mod_python 2.7.11 (manual compile)
In order to make mod_python work partway, I had to install
python2-devel-2.2.2 on a production server (you should never 
have to install -devel packages on a production system)

This system also has python-1.5.2 installed on it, which is
/usr/bin/python, due to rpm-python and yum requirements. So,
replacing /usr/bin/python breaks other things, including
production server policies.

Finally, in order to even get mod_python to work, I had to
edit src/Makefile (added -DEAPI)

It just seems plain messy to me, especially in a production
environment.  It's ok to have to do this in a development
only environment.
