The python setup script is for the python module, which is in a subdirectory of the C library project. I am not going to move to the root directory just to work around a a distutils bug.

This distutils bug could cause it to overwrite files in other directories, since it blindly adds relative paths to the build directory. This is clearly broken.

I've changed my code to use os.path.abspath() while I wait for a fix.
