The problem is that Python looks for pyvenv.cfg in the program directory or in its parent directory. For example:

/tmp/testenv/Python-3.8.0rc1/python looks for /tmp/testenv/Python-3.8.0rc1/pyvenv.cfg (doesn't exist) and 
/tmp/testenv/Python-3.8.0rc1/pyvenv.cfg (exists). On my system, pyvenv.cfg contains:
home = /usr/bin
include-system-site-packages = false
version = 3.7.4

We should add an option to ignore pyvenv.cfg, or modify an existing option like -I to ignore pyvenv.cfg.
