Python on my system is behaving badly, so I want to create a new
install from source code. I have OS X 10.6.2, I downloaded the source
code (Python-2.6.5.tar.bz2) and did the usual, ./configure, make, sudo
make install. Build went fine. But on install, why is it putting
things is my home directory?
copying build/lib.macosx-10.4-x86_64-2.6/_AE.so -> /Users/rob/Library/
copying build/lib.macosx-10.4-x86_64-2.6/_AH.so -> /Users/rob/Library/
copying build/lib.macosx-10.4-x86_64-2.6/_App.so -> /Users/rob/Library/
Later, this causes imports that require those .so files to fail. For
