The scripts should be generated when you install the wheel (with pip
1.5, which will be released soon). OTOH, I thought that wheel put
generated scripts into the wheel file by default (except in version
0.20.0 - do you have the latest version?)

The scripts should be in <wheel file>/<project>.data/scripts - the
wheel install process puts them in the right place (virtualenv/bin or
whatever is appropriate).
