I don't know what these problems would have been but in f2py I just grab
scipy_distutils directly from CVS when building distribution. See f2py

Hmm, did you try to use MANIFEST.in? Sometimes when adding new
(non standard) files to it, you need to remove the generated MANIFEST
before hitting 'setup.py sdist'
