  I noticed this thread in the digest mailing.

Actually the HOWTO is correct ( I know lots of folks would just love the ole
yum/apt-get <huge-list-of-packages> and please build it for me too method )
as it states above the distro specific instructions that python-devel is a
required package. I see someone added the extra packages to the RedHat 6.X

I just moved up the Python development into a *Required* libraries so folks
actually check that python-devel is in fact installed before getting all
excited to run ./configure.  :-P
