>If I understand correctly that you used “/usr/bin/python pysetup install spam” and wanted it to install to /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages, then I think that the correct reply is: Not supported, don’t do that.  If you did something else, please tell what it was :)

Did something along the lines of "pysetup install sqlalchemy" and it's trying to install it under /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages, which is of course wrong. But since it ignores the customized site-local configuration, how could it possibly know where to install?
