I have a package that installs some python modules into the normal

python modules into the sitearch dir; how can I modify the setup.py call to
install to /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 instead of just /usr/lib?
gpsd looks like it's using automake rather than setup.py. So you'll
need to modify Makefile.am and re-run autogen.sh
Start by reading the info page for automake and searching for pyexecdir.
Since you have both python files and a python extension module you
may have to write a custom target for the *.py files. I haven't done
this particular thing before so you'll have to experiment a little.
