[mod_python] can't compile on linux?

So I had no problem building apache, python, and mod_python
on my OS X box, but I'm having problems on my Linux box
(surprising, because that is usually the most trouble-free
compilation environment).

ohm ~/mp2/src/mod_python-3.2.10$ uname -a
Linux ohm 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3p2smp #1 SMP Wed Jul 27 18:07:20 PDT 2005 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


(both configured with ./configure --prefix=/u0/mh/mp)


(configured with
./configure --with-apxs=/u0/mh/mp/bin/apxs --with-python=/u0/mh/mp/bin/python)

The httpd and python both seem good, but I get this
error when compiling mod_python.

Any clues appreciated!
