Ronald Oussoren <ronaldoussoren at mac.com> added the comment:

get_config_var('srcdir') should work, with should then be combined with the path to the Makefile, something like:

      _get_makefile_filename(), get_config_var('srcdir')))

The path.join is necessary because srcdir is most likely a relative path (in my example the value is 'srcdir')
