One minor correction - as you could see from the compile line, the
actual --prefix in this case is /u1/tmp/python2.7a1, but the libraries
obviously aren't installed there yet either.  Perhaps a better fix
than setting -L. would be to put the shared library in
build/lib.freebsd-5.3-RELEASE-i386-2.7 and add that to the library
path for the linker (the build creates this directory, but installs
nothing in it).
