[reportlab-users] [PATCH] Fix setup.py

The setup.py of reportlab available in the current Subversion
repository doesn't allow to install reportlab in a specific prefix
path, because it hardcodes installation of files
to /usr/lib/python-2.5/.

The attached patch fixes the issue for me, but is not perfect. It
correctly fixes the issue for all the data files of reportlab, using the
package_data directive instead of the data_files directive.

However, the fix for the specific case for hyphen.mashed is not correct
(it install it in $prefix/lib). I don't know where this file should be
installed. According to lib/utils.py, I'd say it should go to
$prefix/lib/python-2.5/site-packages/reportlab/lib/. Is that correct ?

If so, I don't know how to install it using the package_data directive.
Ideas ?
