  Very interesting!  The first thing I get is this:

(cd Modules; make -f Makefile.pre Makefile)
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/fdrake/projects/python/temp/Modules'
echo "# Edit this file for local setup changes" >Setup.local
rm -rf ../libpython2.0.a
/bin/sh ../../Modules/makesetup Setup.config Setup.local Setup
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/fdrake/projects/python/temp/Modules'

  Can you capture stout & stderr from a clean configure & make and
mail it to me?
