Good tips, I've got Python23 compiled. 

Any suggestion for folder structure for additional packages, i.e. python? 
Should we create a couple trees (base, app, support?) with subfolders for 
each program, i.e. app/openev, app/mapserver, support/python, support/gtk. 
 I'm wondering where we should toss python into /home/fgs..
