[Slackbuilds-users] Problem with python3

This builds and installs fine, but I get the following when I try to
run the python3.1 interpreter:

    $ python3.1
    Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
    Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
    Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
    Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: can't initialize sys standard streams
    ImportError: No module named encodings.utf_8

Even when I try setting $PYTHONHOME to /usr, or /usr:/usr/bin, I still
get the same error, minus the first 3 lines.

This is on Slackware64 13.0, with alienBob's -current multilib

Any ideas?

I'm also wondering if copying the subdirectories of Tools/, most of
which are standalone scripts, into the site-packages/ directory, is
correct, since site-packages is supposed to be for python modules that
are imported into the interpreter.  Probably these files belong in
/usr/doc/python3-3.1.1, instead of just being symlinked there.
