In the Modules directory note there is a file named Setup (or Setup.dist,
which you can copy to Setup to start.  Scan that file looking for modules
you want to support in your installation, uncomment the relevant line(s) and
adjust as necessary.  Then do the normal configure/make dance.  Those
modules which you've enabled will be statically linked into the Python
interpreter executable and not built as shared objects.

At least that's how I recall it from the days before Python supported shared
libraries.  It's been awhile.
