If sysconfig._generate_posix_vars() creates the build directory and pybuilddir.txt (instead of then it could write in the correct place.  Then would not have to mess with its own sys.path.

One issue with having in the build dir is that distutils copies it (along with everything else in the build dir) to .../lib/python3.x/lib-dynload.  So I think Matthias' patch results in two copies of being installed (plus __pycache__/_sysconfigdata.pyc).
