Doh! Nevermind... I had created a ~/.pydistutils.cfg file a
couple weeks ago, for some stupid reason I can't remember. I forgot
to delete that file. It's contents were:
install_lib = ~/Library/Python/$py_version_short/site-packages
install_scripts = ~/bin
So it was overriding the normal setup.py behavior.
