Stow and Python

Hello, I'm trying to build a Python package for a large
installation, where packages are of the following form:
1) /usr/local is a symlink to /tools/foo
2) packages live in /tools/bar/package-name
3) within each package, there are "bin", "lib", etc. that get linked into
/usr/local/ (using GNU stow).
My problem is that the Python interpreter looks in the absolute
real path for modules, rather than the symlinked "proper" path
("/usr/local/lib" etc.). How do I get it to look in the right place?
Thanks in advance for any hints.
