I'm somewhat confused by this server-client-python thing. Do you mean 
that you want all python related pkgs to be installed on server and you 
clients only contain your own python projects?

Four your information, here's a list of packages needed to build python2.7.
bzip2 db gdbm openssl readline sqlite3 zlib

If you can access server via ssh, why is anything needed to be installed 
on client?

If you want your python projects to reside on your client and to run 
them on server, or vice versa, try an nfs mount.
