[SciPy-user] debugging scipy

Hello,

On a different slant on this topic: Is there documentation on how to 
setup a debugging environment for scipy? I mean by that some sort of 
step-by-step instructions on how to build a debugging version, what 
tools are useful (nm, objdump, etc.) and how to step thru the pdb and/or 
gdb at the same time. I once knew how to do this with extension modules 
with gdb but have lost the knowledge after years of disuse. This sort of 
documentation could help people like me who are users of scipy to 
acquire skills that can help the scipy developers when debugging problems.
