comment Building Python 2.7.9 on a machine where Python 2.7.5 is the system default
The tl;dr is virtualenv is an amazing tool for an individual developer, but it's not the route I'd like to take for this project. As for, "why install a separate 2.7.9 instead of supplement the existing 2.7.5 installation with packages in a PYTHONPATH," (an option we considered) there's not enough room in these comments to explain our internal reasons. Should I take the lack of answers so far to mean that what I want to do simply isn't possible?

comment Building Python 2.7.9 on a machine where Python 2.7.5 is the system default
It's not for my personal use, we're setting up a server for our users and the specifications that have been requested of me is to set up an install of 2.7.9 separate from 2.7.5 that will be globally accessible via NFS for all users. Using virtualenv makes sense and ideally, we'd just have all users set up their own virtualenvs for all their projects. But we don't offer unlimited disk quota, and when told about virtualenv to manage their own environments, our researchers/academics/etc. have a, "I can't be bothered to do this, you're supposed to install and manage my stuff" attitude.

comment Strange Python compilation results with "--enable-shared" flag
Random note: you can actually add an RPATH post-compilation, using a beautifully simple program called patchelf. This was news to me recently and has saved me from recompiling something just because I forgot to set the RPATH/RUN_PATH. Highly recommended: nixos.org/patchelf.html
