I just remembered Modules/Setup.local.  I peeked at mine and noticed it had
been zeroed out.  I then copied a version of it over from another machine
and reran make a couple times.  Makesetup ran but nothing mentioned in
Setup.local got built.

I don't think 2.1 can be released without providing a way for users to
recover from this change.  I didn't see anything obvious in setup.py.  Am I
missing something?
