Sorry for being a pain but the sdist feature does not work. I figured
if you are going to do some work with the scipy_distutils maybe you
could take a peek at the sdist problem too. If sdist works it would
make life easier when I need to install scipy on machines that are
behind a firewall. Here is the error message that I got.
$ python setup.py sdist -d /tmp
reading manifest file 'MANIFEST'
Traceback (most recent call last):

results = [string.replace(file,base,'') for file in files]

return s.replace(old, new, maxsplit)
ValueError: empty pattern string
I tried to modify the scipy_distutils/command/sdist.py but was only
fixing symptoms since I dont understand much of the code.
