DCOracle-1.3.2 makefile problem .er. opportunity?

I've heard one account of big problems with DCOracle on RedHat 7 
(I'm assuming that's what you mean by "Linux 7").

Anyhow, it looks like you don't have the python-devel rpm installed. 
Try installing that.  Get it from your RedHat cd or from rpmfind.net.

Then you should have the missing /usr/lib/python1.5/config/Makefile.

Alternatively, get the Python source and configure, make, make install

Good Luck!
