[PyKDE] pykde Extensions: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpython2.X

I'm trying to build pykde extensions following the INSTALL file directions  
for both python2.3 and python2.4 in which I've install PyKDE for those  
versions of python. On both versions, building pykde extensions fails with  
the error (where 'X' is the minor revision number of python):

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpython2.X
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'libtool' failed with exit status 1

The version of libtool and libtool-libs is 1.5.6-1.99_10.
The command I'm using to try to build/install is:

python2.3 setup.py install


python2.4 setup.py install

Thanks for your consideration in this matter.
