I downloaded Python-2.4.2.tgz expanded it into the directory  
I cd in python-2.4.2 and run

./configure --enable--framework

this creates a file in the python-2.4.2 directory called python.exe
if I run
I get the following prompt
Python 2.4.1 (#2, Mar 31 2005, 00:05:10)
[GCC 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1666)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

If I do sudo make install I still get python 2.4.1 prompt
Is this an error?
What is happening here. Why don't I get 2.4.2
