[Numpy-discussion] where to ship libnpymath.a ?

in Debian we had a bug report[1] requesting to ship libnpymath.a .

[1] http://bugs.debian.org/596987

Our python packaging tools doesn't handle .a files, so I'd like to ask
you where exactly should I ship that file. In the build directory I

$ find . -name "*.a" | xargs md5sum
0c9870a2e5cf61669c92677d9b12c116  ./build/temp_d.linux-x86_64-2.5/libnpymath.a
4c2371b98c138756b0471a4fb364e0ae  ./build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.5/libnpymath.a
fc6040f2bd4354cca8ef130abc5c8b17  ./build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.6/libnpymath.a

(the md5sum is to show that they are actually different between python
version and/or debug build): the first 2 are in the "temporary" debian
package preparation dir, while the other 4 are for 2.5/2.6 +
normal/debug build.

So, back to the original question: where should I put libnpymath.a to
be useful for our users (main request: new scipy)? maybe in
..../numpy/core/lib/ ?
