There is probably no way – in such rare cases you need to expand the 
%py_build and/or %py_install macro by hand and put the needed options there.

BTW those '--no-compile-schemas' and '--no-update-icon-cache' are not 
standard distutils/setuptools options. We cannot handle anything called 
'setup.py' with our %py_* macros, like our '%configure' macro usually 
doesn't work with 'configure' scripts made by hand and not with autoconf.
