Thanks for the info, I appreciate the feedback.  With the problems I kept
running into I eventually switched my default interpreter back to Python 2.4
and reinstalled Buildbot and its dependencies under /usr rather than
/usr/local.  Rebuilding a handful of relatively stable packages turned out
to be way, way easier than basically attempting to recreate the entire glib
dependence tree (not to mention the Crypto stuff for the manhole
functionality) in a new location.

I'm guessing some pretty smart people have spent a fair chunk of time
setting up the CentOS/Gnome distro with what it needs to run, and as long as
Buildbot is stable on Python 2.4 it seems to make more sense to leverage the
work they have done than to try to recreate the entire library from scratch.

Thanks to everyone for the feedback, and if anyone has these problems in the
future I highly recommend just going with your distro's pre-installed Python
version if possible.
