Could you check whether you still see the issue without using
numpy.distutils ? I actually would be surprised to see it as a
distutils issue proper, as somebody would have almost certainly
noticed it already.

numpy.distutils uses distutils, but in an unconvential way, because it
needs to hook itself to internals. Hence, any non trivial change (and
even trivial, sometimes) can break numpy.distutils.
