[SciPy-user] building fortran extensions in scipy

As I indicated in a previous post, I am trying to move some of the 
distributions pdf and likelihood methods to FORTRAN in order to speed 
them up for use in statistical simulation procedures (such as MCMC). I 
have put together one such extension, and added it to the list of 
modules in stats/setup_stats.py, as follows:

	# add futil and fdist modules
	sources = ['futil.f','fdist.f']
	sources = [os.path.join(local_path,x) for x in sources]
	for x in sources:
		ext = Extension(dot_join(parent_package,package,x),sources)

However, when I build scipy, I see that neither futil.so or fdist.so 
exist in the scipy installation. How can I persuade scipy to install
