#293: sandbox.montecarlo cannot be built

 Priority:  normal            |   Milestone:

 Severity:  normal            |    Keywords:          
 I tried to compile the montecarlo module in the scipy sandbox on linux,
 but it fails to build. First, it tries to build using randomkit extension
 from numpy, which has been renamed to mtrand. After the rename, it still
 fails to build because gcc looks for the extension with a lib prefix
 (-lmtrand is looking for libmtrand.so); the search directories look fine,

 I don't know how to correct montecarlo/setup.py so that the linker looks
 for mtrand and not for libmtrand.so
