It's magic from Richard.  It's a file that adds stuff to Python's search 
path.   I don't know details.  It works on Fedora.

Grep your email.  If that doesn't work, I'll find a Message-ID or link to the 
archived copy.

Also look for python-config.patch
It's Richard's suggestion to clean up the install logic.  I think it makes it 
do what you want.  It's what I've been testing with.


Looks like NetBSD doesn't look where we are putting stuff.

-bash-4.4$ python -c "import sys; print sys.path;"
['', '/usr/pkg/lib/python27.zip', '/usr/pkg/lib/python2.7', 
'/usr/pkg/lib/python2.7/plat-netbsd7', '/usr/pkg/lib/python2.7/lib-tk', 
'/usr/pkg/lib/python2.7/lib-old', '/usr/pkg/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload', 

FreeBSD works.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
