What is "the Python folder"?

Assuming you mean "the folder for the Python standard library
modules":

    $ ls -1 /usr/lib/python2.4/ | head -n 10
    aifc.py
    aifc.pyc
    anydbm.py
    anydbm.pyc
    asynchat.py
    asynchat.pyc
    asyncore.py
    asyncore.pyc
    atexit.py
    atexit.pyc

There are no files in that folder with 'builtin' in their name. I'm
don't know what point you're driving at.
