Install Python 2.7.13 from source on Mac

Continuing from previous article.

$ cd ~/hg/cpython

Check latest version in v2.x. v2.7.13 is latest version for that.

$ hg tags | grep 'v2\.7'

Below command hg update -r something is like a git checkout something.

$ hg update -r v2.7.13
3157 files updated, 0 files merged, 190 files removed, 0 files unresolved

$ head -1 README
This is Python version 2.7.13
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/python-2.7.13 --with-pydebug

$ make -j
...
Python build finished, but the necessary bits to build these modules were not found:
_bsddb             dl                 imageop
linuxaudiodev      ossaudiodev        readline
spwd               sunaudiodev
To find the necessary bits, look in setup.py in detect_modules() for the module's name.

I found a document to be helpful. [1]
