Let me add that distutils very much wants you to run the setup script from its parent directory, contrary to autotools which can run from another directory, so it could be that other parts than build* commands are affected.

That said, specifying the target build dir is supported; in other words, don’t run “../setup.py build --src-dir=..” but try “./setup.py build --build-dir some/where”.

I still have to do a bit of research about make distclean.  Some options like build_ext.inplace are not affected by build-dir, so distclean is not as easy as “rm -rf $build_dir”.
