[issue6087] distutils.sysconfig.get_python_lib gives surprising result when used with a Python build

Vinay Sajip <vinay_sajip at yahoo.co.uk> added the comment:

N.B. without the sysconfig.py patch, sysconfig.get_path() fails, but differently.

With the patch, sysconfig.get_path('stdlib') and sysconfig.get_path('include') give the expected values, but _CONFIG_VARS['srcdir'] still seems wrong:

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sysconfig
>>> sysconfig._CONFIG_VARS['srcdir']

Someone please take a look!
