I created a custom build command, and was hoping it would be called when I ran bdist_egg. However, what appears to happen is that bdist_egg runs all of build's subcommands directly, and my custom build command never runs. Is this what's supposed to happen?
What happens is bdist_egg runs install_lib, install_scripts, and install_data. It's these commands that run any build subcommands that apply. bdist_egg doesn't actually invoke *any* build commands directly.
If so, how do I make it call my custom build command short of subclassing bdist_egg and using self.run_command('build')?
Short of that? You can't.
