Have you tried rebuilding mod_python from source code and use
--with-python option to configure script to have it use alternate
Python installation?

If on Leopard, you may need to obtain mod_python from subversion
repository for it to build properly.

If code not mod_python specific but WSGI capable, you may be better
off using mod_wsgi instead and is does a few things properly for Mac
platform that mod_python source code doesn't as far as building it.
