Install Python from the source. Use the prefix-option when running 
configure, from Python's "./configure --help":
By default, `make install' will install all the files in
`/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/lib' etc.  You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' using `--prefix',
for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.

The same applies to Zope, but here the --with-python option is needed, 
too. See ./configure --help
