Yes, we have updated the Python version in 2011.02.

The easiest way is quite certainly to upgrade your Buildroot version to
2011.02. Going this way would allow you to have the support from the
community.

The other way is to backport the patches that bump Python, ie at least:

d82df10e90ee9457ea0baba2d6a766149d4b7c38
10e1927e1a1bc21785b9482fc4ba70d3b4773854
05ac95e04d0b9867194492f75f4713498e2ab7df
e3418f69cf2f17d54dfb521adedbe8abf6e35927

There many be dependencies on other patches as well, it's hard to say.
Going this way, you probably won't have much support from the community.

Regards,

Thomas
