Thanks for the review. I tried to include numpyconfig.h in sparsetools.i 
as you suggest but for some reason it didn't solve the problem 
(hand-editing the generated swig wrapper and placing that file at start 
made it work, though). Maybe someone with more swig/C/C++ experience 
knows why.

I updated the patch in issue #1180.
