The packages rely on the "alternatives" package that I took from ALT Linux.
It uses a set of rpm macros in the %post to install, but, apparently it
relies on a particular macrofiles tag found in /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc or
/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/rpmrc. If it's not there, then the link setup fails.

To workaround manually, type this command as root:

# alternatives-config /usr/bin/python

Then select which python you'd like to be the default.
