What is the best way to compile a python program with many old dependencies?

I'm trying to compile a piece of scientific software called sansview. It has a number of dependencies, a previous version of python and libraries, which are not current versions. I've compiled simple programs before using the ./congifure, make and make install route but not something with dependencies which are not in the repositories.

So far I've downloaded the source for all the dependencies. I'm thinking of creating a folder off my home directory with all the dependencies for the compile of sansview as to avoid confusing my system with multiple python versions.

I'm using fedora 17 64 bit if that is useful to you.

Many thanks,

Paul
