Indeed, you want to be careful about this, but
Apple puts theirs in:
Is the default location for Python.org builds -- and a fine place to
put it. (though you might have clashes if you try to install binaries
build for the python.org builds
But I wonder if this has anything to do with the OP's problem anyway...
Sorry I'm not more help -- I've managed to avoid building python myself so far.
