Python gcc compile error: cannot find -lpython2.3

What should I look for to solve this? XMLdiff is available at and this is my first 
python package install (according to instructons at )

I didn't find 'libpython2.3.a' anywhere in my system. The only files
that come up were:

root@w2kpicasso:/# ls /bin/libpyt* /lib/python2.3/config/libpytho*          
/bin/libpython2.3.dll  /lib/python2.3/config/libpython2.3.dll.a
