It's probably possible, given that the only thing setup.py.in uses is the
mod_python version, and it should be farily easy to make that part of
setup.py itself.

Well, distutils does not know much about how to build applications that
embed Python (although that might be supported in the future), and
certainly it doesn't know how to build an Apache module, which is what
mod_python is. So this isn't going to be possible on _any_ operating
system.

I am almost sure it already can.

It doesn't. It's convenient to invoke it _from_ make, but you don't have
to.
