It seems to me that the path that is appended in my patch should be the
same as the one used in the Makefile. Probably you should update the
patch when it is clear what the correct path would be, depending on the
input of Paul.

On my system, the Makefile test returns
'/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages', which works because the distro
symlinks /usr/lib to /usr/lib64 on 64-bit systems.

Python docs state that distutils.sysconfig.get_python_lib(1,0) would
return the platform dependant path. I'm curious to see whether this
includes /usr/lib64 on Paul's system...
