This script will build python-2.7.x on a centos 6.x box. Tested on vagrant.
# This works on vagrant rather well particularly with the passwordless sudo
# Tested on a Centos 6.5 box file
# Thanks to for
# specfile and install logic
# Set this to the version of python you want to build.
# As of this writing 2.7.6 is the latest
