If you take /sw/lib out of setup.py and then run
$ LDFLAGS=-L/sw/lib ./configure
does setup.py still find goodies in /sw? If not, it should <wink>.
I'm definitely in the 'if I want fink I'll ask for it' camp (and 99%
of the time I don't and won't). Every time I check something into
Python I have to be careful to not check in my local changes to
setup.py that comment this stuff out...
