You need to use the same linker flags as Python did, to build the 'python'
binary. From the looks of it, you need -ldb (or whatever bsddb is called on
your system) and -lpthread (or -lthread or something similar.) I'm not sure
where __eprintf() comes from, though. You might also want to think about
compiling the libraries as shared modules, rather than all into
libpython2.0.a -- that would remove the necessity for at least -ldb ;)
