When I try to run 
	easy_install -eb. <package>

I get lot's of grumbles about the installation directory.
Specifying /tmp is rejected because it is not on the PYTHONPATH.  I can
always run around and delete all the files out of a dummy install-
directory.  However, I don't want to install anywhere.  Is there a way
to say:
	--download-only or --no-install

I really just want to build RPM's.
