[SciPy-user] Bundling numpy/scipy with applications

I'm creating a Python application that is internal to my  
organization, but will be installed on both Linux and Mac OS X  
machines.  The application depends heavily on a number of "non-pure"  
modules (those that have C/C++/FORTRAN components), like numpy,  
scipy, gdal, etc.

What is the most "pythonic" way to bundle these types of modules  
inside my application?

I've investigated dist_utils and setuptools, and I don't see an easy  
way with those tools to include build instructions for packages built  
with autconf tools.

Is my only recourse to write a custom install script that calls the  
"configure;make;make install" from a shell?
