test_distutils fails when you're not building in the root of the source 

That is:

  mkdir build
  cd build
  make check

This fails like this:

test test_distutils failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/ronald/Projects/python/python-
trunk/Lib/distutils/tests/", line 23, in setUp
    shutil.copy(xx_c, self.tmp_dir)

    fsrc = open(src, 'rb')
