storing setup.py (for py2exe) in other directory than main scriptdirectory

search path, instead of the current
working folder. (This used to be different with an older version of

Can I tell py2exe somehow to use the current working directory as
search path instead of the location of the setup.py file ? Also: is
this a feature or a bug ?

The reason I am asking is because I'd like to keep the build scripts
in a "win32specific" subfolder of my code folder,
and then run the following command in the code folder:
python win32specific\setup.py py2exe

Alternative suggestions also welcome!

Best regards,
