The setup.py file both in 0.3 tar-ball and CVS contains:

    ...
    101 if __name__ == "__main__":
    102     ignore_packages = [
    103         #'sparse',
    104         #'kiva','freetype','chaco','traits',
    105         ]
    106     if sys.platform in ['win32','cygwin']:
    ...

Uncommenting line #104 has not effect as scipy does not contain 
kiva,freetype,.. packages anymore.
Uncommenting line #103 would disable building sparce module. What are the 
sparse building failures on OSX that you want to disable it?
