Nope, you don't need python-dev to install python, but might have
needed it for a 3rd party module.

compileall.py lives in the python std library so not finding it would
seem to mean one of two things,
1) the path used in the script is not pointing to the right place.  If
you look in /usr/local/lib/python2.5/ do see decimal.py and shelve.py?
if the directory doesn't exist then the make file needs some guidance.

2) the directory exists and all of the other standard lib stuff is
there but not compileall.py then something is wonky with the python

if you fire up python at the command line what is the version?
then try importing the module, it should go like this.

>>> import compileall
>>> dir(compileall)
['__all__', '__builtins__', '__doc__', '__file__', '__name__',
'compile_dir', 'compile_path', 'main', 'os', 'py_compile', 'sys']

Some interaction with UPS data at work.  Dive in to Python has some
decent stuff on the subject,
