[Distutils] Ability to override location of build/ dir while creating a .egg

'am working on a TurboGears1.0-based app that I need
deploy as a .egg. 'am using setuptools-0.6c3...
TG apps have a basic structure like:
when I run:
python setup.py bdist_egg -b tmp<tgt>dir/distdir/
I can see:
after successful .egg creation. While there is no
issue with that process, I noticed that it places
directory at the level of tmp<tgt>dir itself. Is
there a way to specify the location of this
temporary build/ directory ?
Looked in the online docs, but no way to specify
that. The reason I ask, is that our nightly build
system builds both a <tgt>=i686 and <tgt>=ppc
version of my app and there could be a potential
conflict for both these versions if it just so
happens that one target-build overwrites the
other... at the same time.
If I could specify the build/ path, I could have
and avoid issues of simulataneous diff-<tgt> builds.
