i cannot find it in the code ... but it seems to work on the top level
but is not passed on, so i wonder where in the code this is ?

# ggrep -R os.environ /opt/csw/lib/python2.6/site-packages/setuptools/
easy_install.py:        PYTHONPATH = os.environ.get
easy_install.py:        self.install_dir, os.environ.get
easy_install.py:    sitedirs = filter(None,os.environ.get
easy_install.py:                    home = os.environ.get('HOME')
upload.py:        if os.environ.has_key('HOME'):
upload.py:            rc = os.path.join(os.environ['HOME'], '.pypirc')

me and python programming :) i did

python -m pdb setup.py build
# python -m pdb setup.py build
> /tmp/Imaging-1.1.6/setup.py(9)<module>()
-> import glob, os, re, struct, string, sys
(Pdb) os.environ['CC']
