Yeah, I forgot that since our Apache is custom-built, it isn't setup to
automatically start at boot time (via /etc/init.d). Sorry about that.
Machine seems fine, though.

IIRC, it's only gen-make and friends that need the new Python, and you only
call gen-make if you're building from a checkout. The source tarballs have
already been autogen'd. I build from a working copy on svn.collab.net that
I simply 'svn switch' from tag to tag as we release.
