Is it possible to pass arguments to setup.py? I couldn't see how. Additionally, I might like to do this in a platform-specific way.
Specifically, my use case is this (from a mailing list post):
I'd like to build and test NumPy with Tox. On linux, this works fine (just "tox" with a standard tox.ini). However, on my Windows machine I need to pass "--compiler=mingw32" to NumPy's setup.py.
