OK - I just pulled down a _fresh_ copy of py152.tgz (eschewing the source
copy that came with RedHat 6.1), and built it using:

./configure --prefix=/usr/foo --exec-prefix=/usr/foo
make test
make install

Finally, examining the results:

[dt@nipnyep Python-1.5.2]$ ls /usr/foo/lib/python1.5/config/
Makefile         Setup.local     makesetup  Setup.thread  install-sh      python.o
Setup            config.c      libpython1.5.a

${PREFIX}/lib/python1.5/config - same as my other install
(or, as Aristotle said, "deprecated, my arse").  I think
you will find that your problem stems from not having installed
Python, but instead are running it from your home directory.

No, they're not.

I've done it, and it just worked. ZPyGreSQLDA built "out of the box" with
no problems, and it runs fine.  As I said before, your grievances appear
