Much better.  The binary files are now getting into the source
distribution.  2 issues still:

1. I still have to change
           ext_modules =   [Extension( 'reportlab/lib/_rl_accel',
to just 
           ext_modules =   [Extension( '_rl_accel',
in order for it to create the extensions, otherwise the linker
fails.    We intend to create the .so or .pyd files in the
site-packages directory, not in reportlab.lib, be default,
so that _rl_accel still works.  Does it work for you after
this change?

2. Although the data files are included in the source distro,
'setup.py install' still fails to move them into the installed
area.  I guess we need them referred differently in setup.py 

Kids are back from a party, I will resume work in about 3 hours
time...thanks for all the help!
