How do I influence the platform type during install?  Could you look
at this and tell me what I'm doing wrong?  It's still using
information from get_platform instead of using my preference.

[root at k12linux pyosd-0.2.14]# python install
running install
running build
running build_py
running build_ext
running install_lib
creating /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/pyosd
copying build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.3/pyosd/ ->
copying build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.3/pyosd/ ->
byte-compiling /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/pyosd/ to
byte-compiling /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/pyosd/ to daemon.pyc
