What XML tutorial are you talking about?  What versions of software are you 
talking about?

"python setup.py install" works just fine, and is prety flexible.  If you just 

python setup.py install -h

You get a ist of the availble optons, which include --prefix, which is 
probably what you need:

python setup.py install --prefix=$HOME/lib

Or whatever
