Exactly.  That is all the python changes do.  It puts all the vtkTk*,
vtkpython.so and *.py stuff in ${PY_SITE_DIR} (set in user.make) and
creates an appropriate .pth file.  I have also removed the links to
the vtkTk* files because I felt them unnecessary.  The
libVTK*Python.so libraries go into ${LIB_INSTALL_DIR}.

Once the changes are accepted I will modify the spec file too.  I dont
have a Red Hat machine to test on but I can make all the necessary
modifications and mail them to Dan Blezek, if that is okay.
