I'm getting the following error when I try to install mod_wsgi


checking for apxs2... no
checking for apxs... /usr/sbin/apxs

mod_wsgi 3.2 Apache 2.2 Python 2.6 apr-1.2.7-11

Is this error because of a missing package.. or else how do I solve this issue?

Do you have a libtool package installed?

rpm -qa libtool*

By the way: Instead of compiling yourself, consider using a relevant package from the IUS Community Project repository.
