[New-bugs-announce] [issue1054] scriptsinstall target fails in alternate build dir

New submission from Skip Montanaro:

I tried running make scriptsinstall from my build directory.
It failed with this error message:

  error: file 'byteyears.py' does not exist

I added os.path.abspath() around the source file name in the
error message.  It's looking for byteyears.py in the current
directory.  From where I executed make it's in ../Tools/scripts.
I'm not sure it would work if executed from the top-level source
directory either.
