Actually, there is no need to give scipy include_dirs in setup.py files. 
Since scipy.distutils will be used to build scipy specific extension 
modules anyway, then I thought that scipy include_dirs should be always
used and in the current newcore this is implemented in 
scipy.distutils.command.build_ext module, it uses get_scipy_include_dirs 
function from misc_util.

But I agree with Robert that it might be could idea to install scipy 
headers under 
<prefix>/lib/pythonX.X/site-packages/scipy/base/include/scipy 
rather than under <prefix>/include/pythonX.X/scipy. However, other
places could be also considered:

   <prefix>/lib/pythonX.X/site-packages/scipy/include

for example. Let me know what would you prefer and I'll do the 
implementation.

Pearu
