In the distutils documentation at, under the "Installing Scripts" section, it is stated that the location of the python interpreter can be changed.  How exactly is this achieved?  I am packaging a python application via CDBS which calls the script and changes my interpreter from "#!/usr/bin/env python" to "#!/usr/local/bin/python".  The latter is invalid on Debian.  I would prefer that disutils not change the interpreter at all since it is not needed in my case, however I am not sure where to add this "--executable" flag that is mentioned in the documentation or otherwise override the default behaviour.
