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.
