Because /usr/local is not in the default sys.path on some distros,
wafhelpers/fix_python_config.py was created to try to fix that. It then
creates a bunch of new problems, like installing to /usr when
prefix=/usr/local. This issue is what you filed as #414.

Is your failure case #428, #414, or something else? If something else,
can you describe it here or point me to the issue number?
I already submitted !616, which was already merged. This likely helps
with #428. If not, it may change the results. Can you re-test #428 with

There are two "merge requests" here:
My proposal is the actual !615.
Your proposal was "my MR is trivial: leave as is, except revert the
patch that removed the PYTHONPATH guidance to the builder." Your
proposal to leave things as is does not fix your #414. I asked if you
wanted to amend your proposal in light of that.
Can you also re-test with !615 (to embed locations in build products) to
see if it fixes #414 and/or #428?
Again, to be clear, please test these three:
master for #428 again
!615 for #428
!615 for #414
