Installation from source, python.2.4.5.tgz.
It seems that severals *.so from bsddb are missing:
>>> import bsddb
Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/tmp/Python-2.4.5/Lib/bsddb/", line 47, in ?
import _bsddb
ImportError: No module named _bsddb

Please provide more information about your platform.  Also note 
that ./configure needs to be able to find pre-existing bsddb libs in 
order for Python to build the _bsddb module.

BerkeleyDB is detected when make runs  Look in the output from
your make and you'll see a message about whether or not a useful
BerkeleyDB library and include files were found.

Typically this happens on linux distros because people do not have a
bsddb-dev type package installed containing the header files needed to
