[SciPy-user] distutils problem on cvs install under python 2.3

When I attempt a build of the latest cvs on a clean Debian Linux 
install of python2.3, I get this old error message:

chris at redhead:/usr/src/scipy$ python setup.py build
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "setup.py", line 25, in ?
     from scipy_distutils.core import setup
   File "scipy_core/scipy_distutils/core.py", line 1, in ?
     from distutils.core import *
ImportError: No module named distutils.core

I thought this bug in distutils was squashed long ago. Am I missing 
something here?
