setuptools does interfere with the Fortran extensions to build_ext a little bit
if one isn't careful. Everything works fine if you *build* without setuptools,
and then do the bdist_egg command separately with setuptools.


  $ python setup.py build
  $ python -c "import setuptools; execfile('setup.py')" bdist_egg
