Installing RPM rebuild and failed dependency

P: n/a
I'm running Redhat9 and I want to install Python2.3. I downloaded
the src RPM file and following the directions
(i.e. rpmbuild --rebuild python2.3-2.3.3-2pydotorg.src.rpm).

This runs configure, compiled and dumps all the rpms in my
main RPM directory. I've got BerkeleyDB installed in

When I try and install the built RPM I get the following error:
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by python2.3-2.3.3-2pydotorg

That file is located in /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2/lib but the
RPM install apparently cant find it. I tried creating a
symbolic link in /usr/lib to the file and
I still get the same error.

Any ideas?

install the source rpm, edit the spec file and make sure python is built
against the local db4 library and knows where it is.

Why can't you use the db4 packages included in RH9?
