https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.3/topics/install/ assumes that Django will be installed into a site-packages directory, but this isn't a reliable assumption.
Notably, Debian, Ubuntu etc will put it into a dist-packages directory, and the tip to use:
python -c "from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib; print get_python_lib()"
I think that this would be worth noting briefly to help avoid confusion. If that seems appropriate, let me know and I will submit a documentation patch.
