[SciPy-dev] installing openopt

I have noticed one more openopt installation issue with latest numpy:

modifying any single line in openopt's sources and then running "python 
setup.py install" now recompiles all openopt's files. Even if there were 
no changes at all, anyway all OO files are recompiled. Taking into 
account that I run this dozens times per day it's very annoying, and my 
increases danger for my HDD. Of course I could use OO without "python 
setup.py install" but this is inconvenient because of some reasons (I 
had already tried)

I hope the issue will be fixed by numpy.distutils developers.

Regards, D.
