If I configure Python with "$HOME/.local" as a prefix, test_site fails:

FAIL: test_s_option (test.test_site.HelperFunctionsTests)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/antoine/cpython/opt/Lib/test/", line 182, in test_s_option
    self.assertEqual(rc, 0)
AssertionError: 1 != 0

This is because the user site then falls in the same place as the "main" site-packages:

>>> site.getsitepackages()
['/home/antoine/.local/lib/python3.4/site-packages', '/home/antoine/.local/lib/site-python']
>>> site.getusersitepackages()

(what is "site-python" btw??)
