Bug with slowaris 8 Python-2.2.1 sys.executable?

I'm trying to build a private copy of Python-2.2 on solaris 8 (using the
SourceForge compile farm).

I configure with 
./configure --prefix=$HOME/python22

and after adding some libs ['nsl', 'socket', 'dl'] for the _socket build
and turning off the SSL attempt I obtain a working python which I
installed and linked to $HOME/bin/python

my path shows that python as first on the list, but I get different
results for sys.executable when I run python or $HOME/bin/python even
though the running program seems to be the same. Anyone got any
knowledge of what's going on. When I just get the python off the path
sys.executable seems to be the system python (which is actually 1.5.2).

bash-2.03$ $HOME/bin/python
