trying to install fluxspace...but....

this is the error msg that i get. i just installed python 2.3.3 about 2mins ago:

checking for python... /usr/local/bin/python
checking for python version... 2.3
checking for python platform... linux2
checking for python >= 2.2... okay
checking for headers required to compile python extensions... found
checking for python-config... no
checking for Py_Initialize in -lpython2.3... no
checking for Py_Finalize in -lpython2.3... no
checking for Py_IsInitialized in -lpython2.3... no
configure: error: Unable to determine proper Python link flags.
[root@localhost fluxspace-0.0.3]#

what is wrong? do i need to find these files or headers, or w/e, and specify their path in the config file?
