Comment (by dustin):

 Removing `distutils` doesn't help, either.

 The `build_js` function is running -- that produces
 copying buildbot_www/static/index.html -> build/lib/buildbot_www/static
 What's not happening is the inclusion of the resulting files in the wheel
 file, during the `install_lib` command.

 That command is invoking `copy_tree('build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.6',
 'build/bdist.linux-x86_64/wheel/')`, which is a shame since all those
 files were copied to `build/lib` instead.

 So, one fix may be to properly find the libdir that setuptools/distutils
 is using, and copy the files there directly.
