With the setting (for scons)


in user-config.py you wouldn't even need to copy or link the Python modules to 
Blender's install tree. I use this setting since the switch to bundled Python 
and Blender uses my system installed Python 3.1 resp. now my custom installed 
Python 3.2 (I also installed to /usr/local with "make altinstall").
