It's not a setuptools issue at all. "build_ext --inplace" just doesn't install header files.
Does that mean that python setup.py develop should be banned for numpy?
If so I consider it a setuptools issue: one more caveat to learn about setuptools, ie the fact that setuptools develop is not reliable and can lead to interested bugs without conplaining at all.
IT'S NOT A SETUPTOOLS ISSUE. If you had done a "python setup.py build_ext --inplace" and then set your PYTHONPATH manually, you would have the same problem. Stop blaming setuptools for every little problem. Building inplace is not a setuptools feature. It's a distutils feature. The fact that we have header files in the package is a numpy feature.
