[Numpy-discussion] building a numpy egg for centos

I'm building numpy 1.6.2 for python 2.5 on centos 5.8.

I ran into a problem where bdist_egg was not working. It seems there's
a minor bug in numpy/distutils/core.py

Under python 2.5 the check for setuptools does not work, so the bdist
target for eggs is not available.

I've attached a patch that works around the issue for me. It is my
understanding that python 2.5 should still be a valid target for
building this release. If not, ignore this.
