I built python3.9.0b1 from source using the standard configure make dance eg

./configure --prefix=$HOME/LOCAL/3.9b1
make && make install

that appeared to work fine and I seem to get a working python. However, I seem to have an issue with the distutils package

is this a bug or have I built python 3.9.0b1 wrongly?
