To be clear: what exactly are you trying to install?  The Twisted 1.3

I don't know Fedora, but I'd check to see if you have the python-devel
package installed, and if not see if it makes a difference.

Also, a bit of googling shows there's already an RPM of Twisted for Fedora:

Any particular reason you aren't using that?

Let us know how you're going.
