Hi Steve,
Thanks for the hint. Before I was looking for numpy/distutils (which did 
not exist) and now I found it as numpy/numpy/distutils.
Done. Worked - thanks.

Now, I was trying to build SciPy - without getting through the 
ATALS/Lapack precedure ! So I get the expected Warnings (... NOT 
AVAILABLE)  but then (right after those) I get an error:
   File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\numpy\distutils\system_info.py", 
line 403,
  in get_info
     raise self.notfounderror,self.notfounderror.__doc__
numpy.distutils.system_info.NotFoundError: Some third-party program or 
library is not found.

Does SciPy not come anymore with a fall back non-Lapack version included !?
