I use CentOS as well and use the python 2.6 RPMs from here:


They also have Python 3.1.2 RPMs available as well.

The RPMs install as /usr/bin/python2.6 and I pass --python=/usr/bin/python2.6
to configure.  There were a couple recent commits to fix an issue related to
using a binary named other than 'python', so AFAIK, everything python should
be able to work fine under RHEL5 and CentOS 5.x.
