[Numpy-discussion] debugging scipy install

running "python -c 'import scipy; scipy.test()' "
finding one of the earliest errors referencing a bad_path, I found 
scipy's INSTALL.txt, paragraph 5, under the TROUBLESHOOTING says to 
"cd scipy/Lib/linalg" so you can run:
'python setup_atlas_version.py build_ext --inplace --force'

[ setup_atlas_version.py is actually in scipy/linalg (at least on Windows) ]

...  but that shell command bombs out with the following Traceback
   File "setup_atlas_version.py", line 7 in <module>
     from numpy.distutils.misc_util_import get_path, default_config_dict
ImportError: cannot import name get_path

Seems like getting the path could be source of a '_bad_path_' problem.

Does anyone know where get_path is defined, and if so, where the file 
is downloadable from?

After taking the superpack install routes with both numpy and scipy, 
shouldn't these issues have been taken care of already?
