 Right.  It works as it was intended; generate the .pyc file and install the 
 .py and .pyc files.  Somehow the .pyo files are being generated at runtime.  I 
 have not figured out what is causing that.  I only discovered it because I was 
 switching from Python 2.6.x to Python 2.7.x and was looking at all the 
 leftovers in the site-packages directory.
 I simply got to the bottom of why the .pyo files were not being installed in 
 the first place since just about every other Python application in the ports 
 tree installs them.  That is why I patched the PYTHON_INSTALL macro to also 
 install the optimized byte-compiled code.
