OK, thanks for the feedback, Travis.  I'll try to play with Andrew with this 
problem, and we'll report back, or ask for help if we get stuck.  I know he 
was building against a Python built in /usr/local instead of the default 
system one, but in principle that should work.

I'll let you know if we see problems, for now your message is very useful.
