Thanks, Pearu, this is a good job.  I am having a problem, though.  
config.add_library in scipy.distutils creates names 
libamos__OF__scipy.special.a instead of just libamos.a.  So I guess my 
questions are:

(1) should the add_library method actually do this?

(2) If yes to (1), does this mean that Lib/special/setup _special.py 
should be modified so its list of library names is of this form?

(3) Or, should the add_extension method of Configuration mangle the 
passed-in library names to be of this form?

If I get a vote, I would answer no to #1, but if there's a good reason 
for that answer to be yes, then I would say yes to #3 as well.
