Actually you don't.  You want to run Python on a web server, which  
fortunately is a good deal easier.

The ".\configure" thing is for Linux installations using autotools; it's  
not going to work on Windows.

I don't run Apache on Windows, so I'm just guessing from the documentation  
here, but the mod_wsgi "Installation on Windows" page says to "follow the  
instructions for loading mod_wsgi in the Quick Installation Guide."  The  
"Quick Installation Guide" page has instructions for editing the Apache  
config files.  No mention of running ".\configure" -- why are you doing  
that?  Try just editing the config files as the documentation suggests and  
see if that works.
