Well, we did notice it in the original patch but I've forgotten about it
when backporting.  To be honest, I have mixed feelings about it but I
don't think there's a good way of fixing the original problem without
changing the path.

If this is not a big deal to Sylvestre, I'd like to keep it as-is.
To the best of my knowledge, the path change happens on Debian only,
and specifically because Debian patches Python for the reasons I don't
know.  In any case, the dist- path seems more correct for distribution

Best regards,
