I think this line is wrong.  The arguments should be (1,0).

On Debian there is no difference:

$ python -c "import distutils.sysconfig; print (distutils.sysconfig.get_python_lib(0,0));"
/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages
$ python -c "import distutils.sysconfig; print (distutils.sysconfig.get_python_lib(1,0));"
/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages

But on Fedora, the second one returns the platform-dependent path
(because of the stupid /usr/lib vs /usr/lib64 thing that we suffer
under on Fedora):

$ python -c "import distutils.sysconfig; print (distutils.sysconfig.get_python_lib(0,0));"
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages
$ python -c "import distutils.sysconfig; print (distutils.sysconfig.get_python_lib(1,0));"
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages
