[New-bugs-announce] [issue1887] distutils doesn't support out-of-source builds

New submission from Monty Taylor:

I've been using distutils as part of a larger automake-managed project.
One of the functions that automake provides is "make distcheck" which it
has been especially hard to get distutils to play along with. 

So I added a src-dir option to allow for passing src dir to the build.
