Hi,

While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that udev-discover could not be built reproducibly.

This is caused by determinism in the call to

  self.distribution.get_command_obj('install', False)

in BuildScript.run inside upstream's setup.py.

By specifying the prefix in the build_scripts stanza in setup.cfg we can
remove this non-determinism. See the attached patch.

(If you apply this patch, you might want to change the prefix to "/usr",
ie. without the trailing "/". That will remove the double "//" in the
target.)
