Thank you so much! In fact, I did have a python executable on my PATH in 
~/bin that was screwing things up.  After I moved it (thus leaving the 
system default python as the only python executable on my PATH), the 
build process went smoothly (except for not being able to find a few 
libraries for some C extensions, but I think I can fix that).

I now have working python2.6 and python3.0 executables to play with, 
thanks to you. :-)
