I just did a git pull from [1]. I was getting the following build error (see (1) below) using the "distutils" method. It seems to be due to missing paths to sfepy/fem/extmods/* in sfepy/linalg/extmods, so I followed the example of sfepy/terms/extmods to put in the missing paths. This is available from [2] (it's on the master branch, should I have made a new branch for this?). It's a pretty quick fix to get the build to work, so I wouldn't be surprised if I'm overlooking something. :)

After putting in the fix, I'm getting a test failure in tests/test_permutations.py (see (2)). I figure I missed something else in the distutils configuration. The "make" build method works before and after the fix.

I know sfepy/linalg is new, so probably everything isn't in place for distutils building yet, but I thought I could at least help get the build working again. :)
