Hooks related to find_exe were changed in Python 2.3 distutils and this
causes the import error above in your scipy_distutils that assumes Python
2.2 or earlier. CVS version of scipy_distutils works now also with Python
2.3. So, you should update scipy_distutils from scipy CVS when you are
planning to use Python 2.3.
