[Build-common-hackers] Bug#565973: cdbs should not use --prefix, but --install-layout=deb

cdbs uses '--prefix=/usr' in DEB_PYTHON_INSTALL_ARGS_ALL, which seems to be the
wrong approach. Please use '--install-layout=deb' instead, which changes both
the prefix and the name of the site directory. Packaging helper tools shouldn't
be affected by this, but software packages relying on the correct path on
installation get the right path.
Also when stripping the debug symbols of extensions into a separate debug
package, the location is the correct one.
