I've checked a fix in now. I didn't know that option existed. Note that
it needs to be specified in the config file or on the command line at the
time install_scripts is run, since setuptools-generated scripts don't have
a separate "build" step.
Also, easy_install does not respect this option; I haven't evaluated yet
whether it should, and the change is more complex. So at the moment, I've
only changed it for "install --single-version-externally-managed".
