Bumping a message (especially using top-posting) seldom does much good 
unless you also supply some more information to either catch people's 
attention, or even better, remind them of something they know that might 

So you could have said:

A  .pc file is "lijfds;lkjds;fdsjfds;ljfds;ljfds;ljfd"  and I need to 
produce it in the "slf;lfdsjfds;l;lkjfds;lj" circumstances.

Or,  a .pc file is described on the wiki page at link    

Or even  "I tried to get more information on the comp.lang.pc newsgroup, 
but nobody there will give me the time of day.

As it is, the only thing I could do is point you to the only other 
keyword in your message:  Try on a support forum for distutils.
