I thought you were talking about Anne's actual problem, which is using
Cython inside scipy.stats. The errors referring to Pyrex come from
inside numpy.distutils, which already has code to handle .pyx files as
Pyrex, not Cython files. Even if you fix the example, the actual
problem isn't solvable like that.
