PyType_IsSubtype is a Python C API function that was not introduced until
Python 2.2.  DCOracle2 is hosted on and is (presumably) intended to
be useful to Zope2 users (who're stuck with Python 2.1).

Redhat 8.0 comes with Python 2.2.1 installed by default; could it be that
you compiled DCOracle2 against Python 2.2.1, but installed it for use with
Python 2.1.3?
