I've updated the documentation on how I build Blender with Collada on
Ubuntu 10.10


the trick with python is to use "sudo make altinstall" so it goes
in /usr/local and doesn't overwrite the standard python.

just add

BF_PYTHON = '/usr/local'

to your user_config.py and do

-s /usr/local/lib/python3.2 ../install/linux2/2.56/python/lib/python3.2

after building blender.
