  ~/ros-underlay $ grep SETUPTOOLS * -r
catkin/cmake/python.cmake:option(SETUPTOOLS_DEB_LAYOUT "ON for debian 
style python packages layout" ON)
catkin/cmake/python.cmake:  set(SETUPTOOLS_DEB_LAYOUT OFF)
catkin/cmake/python.cmake:  set(SETUPTOOLS_ARG_EXTRA 
"--install-layout=deb" CACHE STRING "extra arguments to setuptools")
catkin/cmake/python.cmake:  set(SETUPTOOLS_ARG_EXTRA "" CACHE STRING 
"extra arguments to setuptools")

which looks like the ptyhon.cmake option didn't get the news.  Any idea 
of how to correct it?
