Thanks for your fast answer. It does not solve my problem.

As you suggested, I tried PassEnv, it does not change anything for my 
RewriteMap external python script.

The LD_LIBRARY_PATH defined in apachectl is fine, it has /usr/local/lib 
where the needed resides.

I also tried changing the first line of my script from:



#!/usr/bin/env /opt/python/bin/python

It does not work either...

Maybe to many ;-)

For the moment, I'll put a symbolic link to /usr/local/lib/ 
in /usr/lib . Maybe there is something to take into consideration here 
for a future release of mod_rewrite, at least in documenting the 
use/limitation of external RewriteMap programs.

Anyway, thanks again and best regards,
