I would not say that numscons is a *new* build system. Rather, I look
at numscons as a glue layer that allows scons to be used within
distutils for building extensions and libraries.
distutils/numpy/distutils does things that scons doesn't and scons
does things that distutils doesn't. But you definitely need the glue
layer to use both approaches together.
