Indeed, some of it could be IMHO interesting for inclusion into 
distutils/setuptools or whatnot.  For example if Cython is not to 
be run we warn if the the pyx files (and their dependencies) are

Sure, that’s what we are going to do now.  I preferred the other 
solution since we have machinery in place that allows to redefine 
any parameter to any extension through a "build.conf" file.  Now 
if someone redefines include_dirs in "build.conf", they will have 
to add the numpy include path as well.  But that’s OK.
