Can't say I got it working, but you can fix the above error by making
Setup.thread a symlink to Setup.config, in the same directory (you should
have that one.) Setup.thread was renamed to Setup.config in Python 2.0, to
reflect the fact that it contained all configure-selected modules ('bsddb'
and the 'gc' garbage-collector module) and no longer just the thread module.

You *might* run into more errors when building/linking the package against
Python 2.0, but probably not. If you do, you know where to find me. ;-)
