To prevent problems on future upgrades, I would remove the .so files  
from /usr/lib/python2.4/config and use "ln -s" instead of "cp".

It's a hack either way, though. While RedHat may have been doing the  
"proper" thing by moving the libraries up a directory, it goes  
against the de facto convention of using the LIBPL sysconfig variable  
to access that library.

I guess we'll have to check both places.
