mod_python3 not compiling

Any ideas what is wrong here? Libtool is NOT happy about something.

It's not ccache or any of the other usual things, I have rebuild and made sure
libtool is at the latest version.. Apache 2.2, mod_python3 should build fine
(and we have been working as a testbed on SuSE Linux 10.1 which works fine
too). It's not source though it seems just a missing tag?
