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

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.65
Severity: important

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.
