The proposed patch add possibility to run python tests if python is
build outside source tree on POSIX systems.

Just an FYI that I had an error in test_distutils that this patch fixed. 

I was not doing anything abnormal. Just building from the 2.6 source
distribution, making a arch specific sub-directory, using ../configure,
make, and then make test. The original error happened on both x86_64 and
i686 platforms.

Hopefully the eventual fix makes it into 2.6.1.

Issue 4151 contains a similar patch but it cleans up more code, IMHO.

About issue4151 - clean up is in and - it is
 fine with me.
Modification for from above mentioned issue break
non-posix builds.
