They are identical on Debian and derivatives, so this change is a no-op
there. I checked Debian and Ubuntu.

Side note: when this was changed, the comment in libntp/wscript was not
updated to match the code change.

    # In theory this should use PYTHONARCHDIR, but that doesn't work on
    # CentOS (at least), for some as-yet-undetermined reason.  On most
    # platforms, PYTHONARCHDIR == PYTHONDIR, anyway.
