It breaks because your not supposed to assume that Python is installed
as the same directory as DESTDIR. If you want to support DESTDIR like
that, then we are going to need 2 different make targets, one called
"make install-swig-py-ext" for normal users and RPM building, and one
called "make install-swig-py-ext-destdir". The alternative is just to
pass "make install-swig-py-ext DISTUTIL_PARAM=--prefix=some_path" like
you could do before adding the --prefix to the end.
