This was deliberately changed a few weeks back. 


When doing a make dist, dist/install/usr/lib/python is probably the best
location to put the packages.

When doing a reall install, /usr/lib/python$ver/site-packages may well
be the right location.

The build system has been messed around with so much I'm not sure its
still possible to tell the difference between the two cases.

Can we at least get agreement on the behaviour we want?
