Rip out the python makefile and reimplement the build yourself. ;-)
Besides DESTDIR, the python makefile doesn't support VPATH either. (It
claims to do so, but it doesn't work.) I'd also like a way to install the
module as non-root user.
I'm quite serious about the ripping out actually, but it's probably a bit
more work than you care for.
