Ok. One solution might be to remove the libdir option, then. Python
attempts to be "movable", i.e. the libraries are found relative to
the executable (via dirname(sys.executable)+"../lib/..."). If
libdir is supported, this approach must be given up - or libdir must
be given up.

The Linux distributions already provide Python binaries (I believe
Redhat does, too). You could study what they do to achieve that.

No, it should show up automatically.
