Take a closer look. It does NOT downgrade your libreadline. python2.4
compiles with libreadline4, but that does NOT mean you will loose
libreadline5 (it's uninstalling only -dev package). After compiling
python2.4, you can remove libreadline4-dev and install libreadline5-dev.
There is no problems with that.

I guess it's removing ghc6 cause of libreadline, not python. Check with
"apt-cache show ghc6". As with libreadline, you can install ghc6 after
compiling python2.4.

You have here very nice and easy source build.

Belive me, it's not. That's why packages are invented :)
