Andrew I MacIntyre <aimacintyre at users.sourceforge.net> added the comment:
The offending code appears to have been introduced in r33090 and tweaked
in r37025, which both originated from Mark Hammond.
>From the comments, there seems to be no reason why the build_lib
override should apply when the target version is specifically different
from the version being used to build the extension, hence I've attached
a patch which applies the override only when the versions are different
(for both bdist_wininst and bdist_msi).
This doesn't solve the problem that exists when the target and build
versions are different and build_lib has been overridden in setup.py (as
I understand is the case with cx_Oracle).
I've added Mark to the nosy list in the hope he might, as originator of
the problematic changes, be able to provide some insight.
