 Users often install to locations other than {{{$PREFIX/lib/python2.5/site-
 packages/}}}.  Any build system for Python modules that does not use
 distutils to do the building is going to be fragile in these cases. Making
 the build system run {{{`python -c "import numpy; print
 numpy.get_include()"`}}} seems no more onerous to me than any of the other
 things that such a system would require.

 Please don't reopen old tickets only for discussion of contentious issues
 (as opposed to pointing out that an agreed-upon defect still remains).
 Mailing lists are better suited for active discussion. Case in point,
 there are more reasons for the current choice than I listed in this
 ticket, and I believe that I have addressed the concerns you mention here
 on the lists.
