hello,

i'm having some trouble building scipy from subversion. here's the 
relevant output:

  building library "statlib" sources
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "setup.py", line 92, in <module>
     setup_package()
   File "setup.py", line 84, in setup_package

   File "/usr/lib/python2.5/distutils/command/build_ext.py", line 316, 
in check_extensions_list
     (ext_name, build_info) = ext
TypeError: iteration over non-sequence

--------
i've tried looking elsewhere for this problem and all i've found is a 
discussion on pyrex/cython that doesn't really provide an actual solution.

anyone else come across this or know what i should do? this is well 
beyond my grasp.

thanks,
robert
