[New-bugs-announce] [issue16972] Useless function call in site.py

New submission from Kirill:

In Lib/site.py:149 [1] _init_pathinfo call has no effect.  Looks like it's here because in the past _init_pathinfo was changing a global variable [2].  I believe that it should be changed to `known_paths = _init_pathinfo()`, in the same way as it's done in addsitedir function [3].
