I upgraded from python 3.1 to 3.2 using this link: 

After compiling blender (without errors), it failed to run because of 
the "Py_Initialize: Unable to get the locale encoding" error.

Apparently I didn't use the install target for blender and it was still 
using the old python.

Indeed "make install" in blender replaced the old python. But the issue 
was tricky to solve.

Maybe we should add a line in the wiki: "after updating CMakeCache.txt, 
run make install" in the cmake section.
