when building an rpm from a python source (-s) the --prefix doesn't appear to be functioning as expected. as discussed, the ideal outcome would be to have --prefix define the full path were the python lib and data should found. in our case, we wanted to install to /usr/local/lib64/python2.6/site-packages instead of the default /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages.

using --edit to look at the rpm spec file, it appears as though the %files are not honoring the prefix.


Can you try with the --python-install-{bin,data,lib} options. I don't see a problem with the --prefix as such.
