Oh, this should be fixed when I finally fix ticket #668.  For what it  
is worth, this is also setuptools issue 54 (be more like distutils  
with regard to --prefix=), but it doesn't look like it is going to be  
fixed in setuptools anytime soon, so I intend to patch our version of  
setuptools to do this.
