cosmicduck, the recommended and supported way to do this is by specifying the installation prefix at the configure step, not at the "make install" step:

  ./configure --prefix=${HOME}/scripts/tools/python/python-3.3.2
  make install

If done this way, the installed scripts will have the correct shebang lines and Distutils will install properly.
