Command line editing in python shell

I have compiled python 2.0 on a Mandrake 7.2 installation. Command
line editing is impossible: The up-arrow prints ^[[A and so on.

I guess that some libraries are not being found, as I have previously
compiled python 2.0 on a RedHat 6.2 installation and everything worked

Any ideas how I can fix this one ?
