I should ask Albert what he did with scipy.sandbox.svm.  I see he
plays it safe with *3* different methods of building:

svm/setup.py
svm/libsvm-2.82/Makefile.win
svm/libsvm-2.82/SConstruct

Looking at things from the other side, he also pointed me to this url
the other day, showing how to do build Python extensions in scons

http://www.scons.org/wiki/PythonExtensions

Something to keep in mind.

Cheers
Stéfan
