The new build seems to run fine and I didn't need to change the above
flag.  I also dont like this setting since you'll have trouble with
CVS versioning when you change setup.py.  The next time setup.py is
changed in the CVS tree you risk the complication of a conflict.  I'd
suggest placing user configs in a separate file that is not in the CVS
