I don't understand your question. When Python is installed, it installs a
copy of the Makefile that was used to create that Python installation. So
this has nothing to do with the source directory used to compile Python,
only the contents of "/usr/lib/python2.x/config/" -- the directory where
Python's build configuration information is copied upon installation.
