I packaged up the python with the linux OpenEV_FW releases as well, though
in that case I am lagging a bit, still using python 2.2.  It is important
that the same major release (ie. 2.2) of python is used that matches what
the python modules were built against.

In general there should be 3 major environment variables that need to be set.


The following minor variables may also be important:


For the OpenEV_FW releases, I actually setup a cover script for every
commandline program and python script that first set the appropriate
environment variables and then ran the real program/script.  We may need
to do the same or we may just explain to the user what they need to set.
I'm not sure about that yet.
