Yes. And in the case of scipy, it needs to be in the *installed* numpy/distutils
directory.

Next to the setup.py that *invokes* numpy.distutils. AFAICT using os.getcwd() in
system_info.py will give you this directory even if you start running the script
from a different directory (e.g. "python ~/svn/scipy/setup.py install"). I can
check this in if we agree that this is what we want.
