  Hum, it sounds like the problem, dl doesn't seems present
on my system (1.5 though there is /usr/lib/python1.5/test/test_dl.py ???)

  Hannu, since I can't reproduce the linker problems myself, could
you try to see if changing libxsl.py to 
    import dl
    import sys
    sys.setdlopenflags(dl.RTLD_NOW | dl.RTLD_GLOBAL)
import libxml2mod
import libxsltmod
import libxml2

# Everything below this point is automatically generated
  rebuilding in the python dir (the libxslt.py should be updated
accordingly) does indeed fix the problem ?

  thanks in advance,
