"make frameworkinstall" for a framework build of Python installs a 
symlink to the interpreter in /usr/local, but it doesn't do the same 
for the man page, scripts and maybe other auxiliary files.

Either it needs to install these, or it needs to be documented that 
they aren't installed, preferably with an option to install them with 
an extra make.

Current wisdom seems to be that it's better to add the directories inside the 
framework to relevant paths (PATH and MANPATH) instead of adding symlinks 
in /usr/local.

The binary installer will install a symlink to the embedded documentation in /

IMHO this can be closed.

BTW. 'make frameworkinstall' is deprecated as well, just use 'make install'.
