Why, yes, indeed. I have. :)

Slackware Linux 10.1
Python 2.4.1
Apache 2.1.6 Alpha

You must patch the mod_python source before running ./config.

Remove this from src/filterobject.c:

if (!APR_STATUS_IS_EAGAIN(self->rc) && !APR_STATUS_IS_SUCCESS(self->rc)) {
   PyString_FromString("Input filter read error"));
   return NULL;

And remove this from src/connobject.c:

   PyString_FromString("Connection read error"));
   return NULL;

Then the usual (modify to point to your version of apxs):

  ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs
  su -
  make install

I haven't tried out the latest Apache 2.1.7, but hopefully this will 
work the same.
