I don't think that pyxpcom is being maintained or that it will 
build/work with versions of mozilla built after 4/1/2002 (including your 
version 1.0).

I tried to build it and failed both with 1.0 code and with today's cvs. 
It turns out that it depends on a file xp_core.h which was taken out of 
the tree as seen here:

Further searching shows that the maintainer wasn't really interested in 
keeping it up to date:

Upgrade to moz 1.3 ;] it's got bayesian spam filtering that works great, 
though recent nightlies have been unstable for me.
