New issue 2647: Unable to install headers in virtualenv
The include directory should be virtualized in virtualenv -- such that `venv/include` is a real directory, `venv/include/pypy` links to `/usr/lib/pypy/include` so that a package can install C headers into `venv/include/site`. But right now virtualenv links `venv/include` to `/usr/lib/pypy/include`, causes the header installations fail.
Steps to reproduce:
virtualenv -p pypy venv
. venv/bin/activate # bash assumed
pip install bsddb3==6.2.3 # 6.2.4 has another bug under fixing
At the last step, permission denied, although the package installs.
