The /usr/bin/python installs the executable into /usr/local/bin. I'd be
fine if the Macports installed it in /opt/local/bin -- this makes me
believe there is a config directive I'm missing somewhere.

When I run "/opt/local/bin/python setup.py install" it ends up buried in directories under the Macports directory structure, which isn't usable. Maybe I am missing some ENV variables?
