There's a shallow error in system_info.py
File "C:\Documents and
line 118, in ?
default_lib_dirs = ['C:\\',
NameError: name 'join' is not defined
Just replacing join with os.path.join fixed that. However, it didn't
help. I had this fantasy that default_lib_dirs would get picked up
automagically; however that does not happen. I still ended up putting:
from numpy.distutils import system_info
library_dirs = system_info.default_lib_dirs
into setup.py. Is that acceptable? It's not very elegant.
The changes to setup.py in random and the M_PI, seem to have worked
since with the changes above it compiles and passes all of the tests
except for the previously mentioned test_minrelpath.
