Bug with make altinstall ?

I've made a local installation of Python2.5 with the following
instruction :

export BASE=/usr/local/python251

cd Python.2.5.1
../configure --prefix=${BASE}/\

make test
make altinstall

It works fine on Linux except this little inconsistency :
% /usr/local/python251/bin/idle
zsh: ./idle: bad interpreter: /usr/local/python25/bin/python: aucun
fich ier ou répertoire de ce type
zsh: exit 127 ./idle

Indeed, the make altinstall instruction does not make the link from
python2.5 to python, but idle contains the following code :
% more idle

from idlelib.PyShell import main
if __name__ == '__main__':

Shouldn't the shebang be replaced with #!/usr/local/python251/bin/
python2.5 ?
This pb doesn't appear with pydoc and pycolor, so it smells like a
bug to me
