building helper executables with distutils

I have a module which needs to invoke a suid helper program in order to 
do what it needs to do.  This suid helper program needs to be built and 
installed at the same time as the module.

Is there any way to do this with distutils?  I've been looking through 
the documentation but haven't really found any way to do it except maybe 
by invoking a system call running a script to do the suid build process.
