[Distutils] Installing config files into specific directories, even with setuptools?

Basically, I can install files into:

$HOME/.local/share/dbus-1/services
or
/usr/local/share/dbus-1/services
or
/usr/share/dbus-1/services
(or anywhere in xdg.BaseDirectory.xdg_data_dirs really)

but I want to pick the most appropriate place, taking into account the
--prefix option to setup.py, or the root of the virtualenv/whatever.

What is the most portable way to to this?



David.
