[Distutils] easy_install and Unix python with sys.prefix different from sys.exec_prefix

In our python installation python modules are shared between a
Solaris, Linux and Linux-x86_64 installation. We are managing this by
giving the --exec-prefix option as well as the --prefix option when
configuring python and sharing the directories by NFS. This generally
well with distutils, which put extensions under the --exec-prefix path
and modules under the --prefix path. The problem with distutils are
extensions expecting 'pyconfig.h' at
and shebang string in scripts pointing to a python executable that
works only for one architecture.
For the shebang string problem it would be helpful to be able to set
the default string to
#! /usr/bin/env python"
in a configuration file.
With easy install there is a further problem. It installs extensions
which is a problem with the 'easy-install.pth' that point to an
architecture sensitive egg in an directory shared by all
Is there a way to fix these problems?
