"make altinstall" installs everything including pythonX.Y binary. "make
install" does "make altinstall" and then hardlinks pythonX.Y to just
python. Running "make altinstall" without "make install" installs python
without the last step, so your previous python binary left intact, and you
new python binary is pythonX.Y.

Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
