I created a module (scipy_subpackages.py, IIRC) next to setup.py that
essentially just served as a global configuration to inform all of the
setup.py's what subpackages they were supposed to build (mostly just
Lib/setup.py, actually). I then had a script run through the various collections
of subpackages that I wanted to build, set the appropriate values in
scipy_subpackages, and run setup() with the appropriate parameters to build an
egg for each collection.
However, build/ apparently needs to be cleaned out between each egg, otherwise
you contaminate later eggs.
