On second thoughts, how are you doing this? If I'm reading the next line

you haven't installed Python, you've just compiled it and are now trying to
run the test suite manually.

If you read the README file, you should see instructions that tell you to
run the following commands:

    make test
    sudo make install

I recommend following those instructions if you can.
