build done in cwd #339

I usually open a terminal, type su admin, then pip install. This fails because pip tries to create a build directory in the current working directory, which is the home of the user I just su'd away from, where admin had no rights.

(easily worked around by doing cd first)

The funny thing is that this failure gets logged to ~/.pip/pip.log, so why not have the build directory there as well? Or in /tmp?

Sorry if this is necessary for virtualenv, which I know nothing about.

This should now be fixed in develop.
