OOI why the mixture of /usr/local and /usr? I don't know how Fedora is
setup but perhaps you actually wanted --libdir=/usr/local/lib64?
Normally /usr is reserved for packaged stuff.

uninstall unfortunately can miss stuff. It shouldn't matter if you are
running Xen at the time though.

$ python
>>> import sys
>>> print sys.path
['', '/usr/lib/python2.7', '/usr/lib/python2.7/plat-linux2', ...snip

$PYTHONPATH will be added to this I think.
