[SciPy-dev] building fftpack separately

I have a question on how to build fftpack separately:

- fftpack/NOTES.txt says that one should do::

     python setup_fftpack.py install

  but that file does not exist

- Doing::

    python setup.py install --prefix=....

  works and installs an fftpack directly into site-packages
  (and not under scipy).

- However, there is no test subdirectory.

Running the tests only works partially, as it only
takes the default test-level:

fftpack/NOTES.txt says that for testing you should run::

  python tests/test_basic.py 10
  python tests/test_pseudo_diffs.py 10
  python tests/test_helper.py 10

They do run (after ommitting the `tests/`), but
none of the fft benchmarks.

further fftpack/NOTES.txt says

  >>> import fftpack
  >>> fftpack.test(10)

but this does not work::

  In [1]: import fftpack
  In [2]: fftpack.test(10)
  AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'test'

Best, Arnd
