In general it makes sense not to copy data files when building.
I think we do not need to alter scipy_distutils for testing. Doing, for

  setup.py install --prefix=/tmp  
  cd /tmp/lib/python2.2/site-packages
  python -c 'import scipy;scipy.test()'

should give a work around for this problem.

BTW, weave tests all pass with Python 2.2 and gcc version 2.95.4.
Though I still get
