For startes, in the directory:

  /opt/local/lib/python2.5/config

create a symlink to where the libpython2.5.so file is located. This
will allow mod_python to make use of Python shared library.

For reference, see section 'Lack Of Python Shared Library' of:

  http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/InstallationIssues

This documentation is from mod_wsgi, but it is affected by same issue.

Now, this may not help, because your compiler output suggests that required:

  -L/opt/local/lib/python2.5/config

is missing.

The configure script has perhaps got a bit confused because it says:

checking checking where python libraries are installed...
/opt/local/lib/python2.5

Add the symlink, do a 'make distclean', run configure again, and
recompile again to see what happens.
