Well, Fred, that is harder then you think. (It shows that you're using
Solaris at CNRI). Consider a regular Linux Python user. He installed
Python from the .deb (well, okay, I didn't mean regular regular, but the
same argument goes for .rpm), so it is in /usr/bin/python. But when he
installs, say, PIL from the sources, he wants it in /usr/local/lib/...
That is, don't confuse the directory Python was installed in and the
directory the users want to install new sparkling Python modules in.
