Should it work with python 2.2 ?

I'm able to import libxml2 fine but import libxslt gives

[GCC 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-85)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import libxml2mod
>>> import libxsltmod
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: h=938=B5x@/libz.sow: shared object not open

Or should I just recompile without zlib ?
