I adapted to:
   ./configure --with-postgres/libraries=/usr/local/pgsql/lib 

I have python2.3 but mx is only in 2.2 for some reason. Zope-2.6.2 says 
use Python 2.1 only; it didn't install satisfactorily but as I'm not 
planning to use on a website at this point does that matter? The 
libraries are there.

At this point, using the command
   conn = psycopg.connect("dbname=personal", serialize=0)
from psycogq documentation, I get
   NameError: name 'psycopg' is not defined

What am I missing?
