What is the purpose of DISTUTILS_DEBUG, if I set it to one, I cannot get 
anything to run ?

For instance:

"""
from distutils.core import setup

import glob

thefiles = []
for afile in glob.glob('datadir/*'):
     if afile.endswith('.not'): continue
     thefiles.append(afile)

print "Packaging up", thefiles

setup(name='justdata', data_files = [ [ 'foodir', thefiles ] ] )
"""

Here's an example of how this works:

[alex at lancelot tryp]$ ls datadir
aa.yes  bb.not  cc.yes
[alex at lancelot tryp]$ python setup.py bdist


Then try it with

export DISTUTILS_DEBUG=1

I get:

Packaging up ['bin/libgdcmijpeg8.so', 'bin/libgdcmijpeg12.so', 
'bin/libgdcmljpeg.so', 'bin/libgdcm.so', 'bin/libvtkgdcm.so', 
'bin/_gdcm.so', 'bin/libvtkgdcmPython.so']

Could someone please fix the documentation saying that one should not 
use it.

Thanks
