scripts/ does not respect options passed to

Setuptools supports changing the target installation environment when building an RPM ( bdist_rpm) with the --python or --fix-python options. These have the effect of changing the path to the python executable to invoke in the generated .spec file.

However, Django's specifies a custom installation script in scripts/, which always invokes python directly:

# This is what normally does.
python install --root=${RPM_BUILD_ROOT} --record="INSTALLED_FILES"

As a result, it's impossible to generate a Django install to target non-default environments.

This can be worked around by manually specifying the correct path in scripts/ before running
