    python setup.py build_ext --inplace


There's also no replacement for setup.py sdist, or setup.py upload (which
is broken and should never be used), or setup.py clean (which is also
broken and should never be used in numpy's case). pip is a better package
installer than raw distutils or setuptools, for non-installation-related
tasks it has nothing to offer. (With the partial exception of 'pip wheel'.)
