[SciPy-User] probs making docs

Just been making up
numpy/ipython/scipy/matplotlib/pytables/netCDF4/cython etc on OS X
10.6 to go with python installed from the new 2.7.1. 10.6 x86_64/i386

Most things seem to work very straightforwardly -- numpy and scipy
trunk seem in very good shape, and the new python installer makes
everything much easier -- and numpy and matplotlib docs made OK, but
I'm having a problem making up the scipy documentation.

In the scipy/doc directory I initially tried
make html
It failed, looking for numpydoc.
I therefore installed numpydoc.

The output of make html is now

mkdir -p build
touch build/generate-stamp
mkdir -p build/html build/doctrees
LANG=C sphinx-build -b html -d build/doctrees   source build/html
Running Sphinx v1.0.5
Scipy (VERSION 0.10.dev) (RELEASE 0.10.0.dev)

Extension error:
Could not import extension plot_directive (exception: No module named
make: *** [html] Error 1

This seems strange, given that plot_directive.{py,pyc} are in the
installed numpydoc directory
