The distutils.cfg file is located in the distutils package itself !

So the target is ~/.local/pythonX.X/site-packages/distutils/distutils.cfg

(sorry if that was unclear)

Now, I would totally agree to have a better ~/.NAME to reunite
user-specific *configuration* file for Python, but that would be yet
another directory for user-specific Python files.
