Hello to all......Today I was trying to install FreeCAD 0.10 from its source code. I am using RHEL5. I have firstly installed python2.6.5 from source and also tested it. Python is working fine. But when I try to compile FreeCAD 0.10, I got following configure error :

#./configure --with-python-include=/usr/local/include/python2.6 --with-python-lib=/usr/local/lib/python2.6

checking for a Python interpreter with version >= 2.5... python

checking for libpython2.6... no
configure: error:
        **** Cannot find Python2.6 devel files. ****


I also searched internet for python-devel source code but was unable to find any such pacage. Please help me to resolve this python error.
