Problems build 2.1.3 RPM on Mitel SME Server

I'm attempting, for the first time, to build an RPM for Python 2.1.3 on 
the Mitel SME Server Linux distribution. My test box has all the 
relevant compile tools and source RPMs, as far as I can tell. When I run 
the rpm --rebuild command, it processes for a good 10 minutes or so, 
before failing with the following:

I want 2.1.3, as I plan to test Plone, which currently does not support 
Python 2.2. I'd be grateful for any feedback anyone can provide.
