Well, but it should because it's a part of a standard Python 
installation. See "New, Improved, and Removed Modules":
"If you're compiling the Python source yourself, note that the source 
tree doesn't include the SQLite code, only the wrapper module. You'll 
need to have the SQLite libraries and headers installed before 
compiling Python, and the build process will compile the module when 
the necessary headers are available."
