Unfortunately, there hasn't been a release of Python 3.1 since 3.1.1.  
On the other hand, the problem isn't critical: it only prevents the 
installation from creating the .pyc compiled byte-code files for the 
python files in the standard library.  Python 3.1.1 should run just 
fine, albeit sometimes a bit slower, without them.
