You only need to make sure that the modules are in $PYTHONPATH (which
at runtime translates to sys.path). Usually the default directory is
/usr/lib/python<version>/lib so if you put the modules there it should
work. (BTW the RPM should have put them there for you, if not it is a
bug in the RPM and the maintainer should be bugged and you need to
change it for your system).
