My definition of "works" was that it installed where I think you wanted it to 
go and ntpq and friends worked without PYTHONPATH but with Richard's local.pth

If you think we should be using PYTHONPATH, then we shouldn't waste more time 
until we sort that out.

I think it installed stuff where you want, but that's not in sys.path and I 
didn't find the local.pth magic to make it work without PYTHONPATH.

Again, I'm running with Richard's python-config.patch

Yes, it installed in /usr/local/ and such and ran without PYTHONPATH.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
