New submission from Alexander Dreyer <adreyer at gmx.de>:

At the Sage Days 24 coding sprint the issue came up, that the setup.py install programs of several python-based tools pick the prefix-setting from ~/.pydistutils.cfg. 

In order to get this right, we suggest to introduce the environment variable DISTUTILS_NO_USER_CFG. It can be used like the --no-user-cfg commandline option supported by distutils.

Best regards
