After reviewing the bits of data among the arguments again, yes, python 
paths are controlled by the distribution.

Breakage I know of well enough to specify:

* Fedora does not have /usr/local/ in its path

* Ubuntu 17.04 (mine) does not include /usr/local/lib/python3 is its 
path. Unfortunately python tells it to install there, instead of 
python3.5 / 3.6 / etc

So how does this work? Just hunt down each distribution that has a path 
problem and file a bug report?
