Re: Installing Python 2.6 on a system with Python 2.7.3
They mean in the top level of your python directory
So if you source code is at ~/Desktop/python2.6, you'd cd to ~/Desktop/python2.6 then run make. I keep source code I've installed at ~/src, since you have to keep it around if you want to remove the installed software in a nice clean manner in the future.
