[Mailman-Users] distutils is not available or incomplete when ./configure mailman 2.1.23?

When I run configure like this:

./configure --prefix=/var/lib/mailman --with-username=list --with-groupname=list --with-cgi-gid=www-data --with-mail-gid=list --with-mailhost=YOUR.EMAIL.DOMAIN --with-urlhost=YOUR.WEB.DOMAIN

A few lines later I get:

… checking that Python has a working distutils... configure: error: 

***** Distutils is not available or is incomplete for /usr/bin/python
***** If you installed Python from RPM (or other package manager)
***** be sure to install the -devel package, or install Python
***** from source.  See sec. 15.1 of the Installation Manual for
***** details

What am I missing?

Thank you, Caesar.
