You also need to install the python-devel RPM to get the
/usr/lib/python1.5/config/ directory, which contains the files needed
to compile new Python extensions.  

You shouldn't have to extract the files into /usr/local/PyXML-0.5.2,
though that shouldn't cause any problems; running 'python setup.py
install' should copy all the files into
/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/xml/ .
