Originally reported by: guest (Bitbucket: guest, GitHub: guest)

Couldn't install CherryPy to alternate directory using PIP. It fails at 'intall_data'.

I comment line 110 in fix_data_files(data_files)

Note: This was using Jython but guess it would be the same with CPython.

Alternate directory: /opt/nhery/lib/jython2.5.2/site-packages
Default directory (don't have permissions): /opt/fddata/jython2.5.2/Lib/site-packages

I have a /opt/fddata/jython2.5.2/Lib/distutils/distutils.cfg that looks like:
install_lib = /opt/nhery/lib/jython2.5.2/site-packages

Works fine until install_data
Output of 'pip install cherrypy':

byte-compiling /opt/nhery/lib/jython2.5.2/site-packages/cherrypy/tutorial/ to bonus-sqlobject$py.class

byte-compiling /opt/nhery/lib/jython2.5.2/site-packages/cherrypy/tutorial/ to tut02_expose_methods$py.class

running install_data

creating /opt/fddata/jython2.5.2/Lib/site-packages/cherrypy

error: could not create '/opt/fddata/jython2.5.2/Lib/site-packages/cherrypy': Permission denied

…ncluded with the installation. Abandon hacks in INSTALL_SCHEMES and hacks for wininst. Fixes #1538 and #1090.

I'm assuming this is fixed by #1539.
