[Numpy-discussion] how to include numpy headers when building an extension?

Hi all,

I'm porting an extension from Numeric. At the top, I've changed:

#include <Numeric/arrayobject.h>


#include <numpy/arrayobject.h>

But distutils can't find numpy/arrayobject.h -- how do I tell distutils 
where to look for it? I've gotten it to work by hard-coding the entire 
path, but that's not very portable.

It looks like Numeric used to put its headers in a standard location, 
but that numpy buries them deeper.
