Looking at the source code in distutils.command.installer, it seems the "--install-base" option is ignored, since it is always overwritten, either in finalize_unix() or finalize_other().

(I haven't tried to check this on the command line, though)

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
