Getting the RDFLib python library dev environment set up

This post records how I got the RDFLib python library up and running in my Ubuntu development environment.
My system setup is as follows:
Ubuntu v12.04.1 LTS
note that python3 is installed in the /usr/lib folder but doesn't seem to be used by Eclipse.
perhaps this can be changed easily in the includes in Eclipse?
I initially copied the download directory over to /opt and ran easy-install
But then I noticed that it had been added to the /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ folder. This probably happened during the install.
I then deleted the /opt folder
Having set all this up I tried to run some code:
for s,p,o in g:
It ran fine but I was getting an error in Eclipse saying that rdflib was unknown. I opened up the properties dialog for the project and added the usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ path and when I opened the file up again the error was gone.
So I'm now ready to write some Python+RDFLib code!
