[Distutils] setuptools in a cross-compilation packaging environment

I am the package maintainer of python and a couple of python packages for
the nslu2 optware platform, see http://www.nslu2-linux.org and
There were some distutils features I really appreciate:
1) setup.py install --prefix
This allows us to install into a separate staging area.
2) setup.cfg [build_scripts] executable option
3) setup.cfg [build_ext] include-dirs, library-dirs and rpath options
The new setuptools is all nice and easy for end user, but as a package
maintainer, I'd like to have the option of building a binary package without
all the dependencies. Is it possible? How about the above distutils
features, are there any equivalent?
Thanks in advance for any advice,
