_tkinter fails when installing Python 2.4.4

I'm installing Python 2.4.4 on a CentOS release 4.6 (Final) [RedHat
Enterprise Linux 4.6] 64-bit machine. Running "./configure --prefix="/
usr/local/yosi/ciao-4.0/ots" --enable-shared" appears to be fine, but
I get the following error message when I run "make":

You are aware that the above shows python 2.5 as the version that is
being used for compilation?

Sorry. I get the same error messages for Python 2.4.4, Python 2.4.5,
and Python 2.5. The software package I'm trying to build from source
requests that I install Python 2.4.4, so I'm interesting in solutions
for that particular distribution.

I think the actual problem is that the linking doesn't find the
XftGlyphExtends. I can only guess, but it might be related to
64-bit-problems. Make sure you have the library that contains the
XftGlyphExtends is available in the lib64 dirs and so forth.

I tried running configure with --x-include="/usr/X11R6/include" --x-
libraries="/usr/X11R6/lib" (in addition to the flags above) and got
the same error. I believe XftGlyphExtends is defined in "Xft.h" which
is located in the directory "/usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft". Based on
the output below, python looks in "/usr/X11R6/include" but not in this
directory:

lX11 -o build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.4/_tkinter.so

When I try setting CFLAGS="-I/usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft" and re-
running configure, I get the same error message regardless if I tell
python to it to use the 32 bit of 64 bit X-Windows libraries. How
should I force python to look in this directory?

The above is a LINKER error, not a compiler-error. You need to find the
library which contains the missing symbol, and trace where it get's
picked up wrong. Not something (I at least) can do from here.
