You'll need to install the respective libraries before you can build those
python extensions. Keep in mind that you probably don't need ALL of them,
but I'd recommend getting hashlib, ssl, sqlite3, zlib and bz2 at a minimum.
Which packages you need to provide those libraries depends on the system
you're on and I'm not familiar with Fedora, but you can start searching for
similarly named packages. Also, you can take a look at the dependencies for
something that comes with the system, like python 2.5. Installing those
should provide the right libraries to build python 2.6
