Thank you for replying Martin.
I think the path is correct and the report after running the configure 
script tells it's all right

Configure option:

Files and directory location:
~/grass-6.4.0RC5$ locate python2.5-config

~/grass-6.4.0RC5$ locate Python.h

Do I have to move the Python.h somewhere else?
(As you can see, I still don't know nearly anything about compiling 
issues... suggestions on "how to" and "get started" on this subject are 
highly appreciated :-))
