              ~/pydistutils.cfg can break python installs


 The python portgroups do `${python.bin} setup.py install
 --prefix=${prefix} --root=${destroot}` for the destroot phase. I guess
 ~/.pydistutils.cfg must override the options given on the command line. If
 that is how it's meant to work, is this really our bug?
