How to run Python from build directory?

I want to try Python 2.2a1 and have already compiled it in the
~/src/Python-2.2a1 directory.

(there are problems with pyexpat, but python binary compiled OK).

How do I run Python 2.2a1 using it's own libraries and all? (Right now I
have a feeling it uses libs from /usr/python* ...)

Do I need to ./configure --prefix=mydir to do that?

Where to get right expat?
