Well, the best way if you can manage it is to ask Python to install it
for you; no one will know better where it belongs.

That said, I have a project to hand which installs some Python bindings;
here follow some bits of its makefile from which you should be able to
infer what it does.  Disclaimer: This project is not widely distributed
or tested, and I've tweaked the rules slightly to make them easier to
understand, so no guarantee it really does the right thing.  Also, I
suspect it would be polite to install things in a subdirectory of
site-packages, rather than dumping them at the top level like this.

PYLIBDIR := $(PREFIX)/lib/python$(PYTHON_VERSION)/site-packages

install: $(LIBRARIES)
  install -d $(PYLIBDIR)
  install $(PY_FILES) $(PYLIBDIR)
  libtool --mode=install --tag=disable-static \
    install -m644  $(LIBRARIES) $(PYLIBDIR)

There are of course lots of other projects in the same boat; you might
well be able to find a more appropriate one to mimic.
