New submission from trevor <trevor at well.com>:

attempting to point the relative destination with "--install-data" does not seem to have an effect. the specified directory is created, but resources are still installed relative to the present working directory.


resources =
    externalfiles/tobemoved.txt = support

% pysetup3 run install_dist --install-data /tmp/example

/tmp/example is created with no files, ./support/tobemoved.txt is created
