Thanks for your reply, Christian.

And yes, I have. I looked into this. I'm working on a 64bit machine.
And the sqlite3 is 64bit as well. Should I install a 32bit sqlite3? I
think when I building python, the configure program should detect if
my system 32bit or 64bit one and look for proper sqlite3 version.

Is that the problem?

Thanks again,
