[Python-modules-team] Bug#516906: pysnmp-se: FTBFS with python-support in experimental

Package: pysnmp-se
Version: 3.5.2-3


The pysnmp-se rules file contains the following:
LIBDIR = $(PKGDIR)/usr/share/python-support/$(PKG)
                # libdir/pysnmp -> libdir/v3/pysnmp
        mv $(LIBDIR)/pysnmp $(LIBDIR)/v3
        mkdir $(LIBDIR)/pysnmp
        mv $(LIBDIR)/v3 $(LIBDIR)/pysnmp/

With the upcoming version of python-support (currently in experimental),
such statements will make the package FTBFS, since the files are now
moved to a different directory (/usr/share/pyshared).

I suggest to do this move before the dh_pysupport call, and from the
standard installation directory:

LIBDIR = $(PKGDIR)/usr/lib/`pyversions -d`/site-packages
	mv $(LIBDIR)/pysnmp $(LIBDIR)/v3

As a general rule, please do not rely on the internals of python-support
in the packaging; this will avoid such issues in the future (although
hopefully there won’t be a need to change the paths any further).

  `-    me that if you don't install Lenny, he'd melt your brain.
