Since japanese.pth is processed as a 'data' file, you have two options:
1. Only invoke the install_lib command, not the install command.
   This will then avoid the install_headers, install_scripts, and
   install_data commands (the first two not being used here, anyway).

2. Provide the --install-data= argument to the install command, to
   specify an alternative prefix for data files.
