i would like to switch to distutils but currently i have the following
problem: psycopg compiles and run on many different archs (ia32, ia64,
sparc, powerpc, m68k, alpha, etc.) and platforms (linux, *bsd, macos x,
sun solaris and win32). apart from win32, still not perfectly
integrated, all the others depend on a single configure.in script about
50 lines in length. do distutils allow for that? do they provide an easy
way to:

    * check for libraries
    * check for headers
    * check for functions in libraries
    * define variables used at compile time

if someone can show me a 50 liners setup.py script that does all that,
i'll be glad to switch.
