changing build order for SWIG extensions

Hi all.
How do I tell distutils to run build_ext before build_py when I try to
do a

'python setup.py build' ?

I have a C extension using SWIG, and when I build with setup.py,
build_py runs on the current module.py file before swig
creates/recreates it. I got around it by just putting in another call
to setup for the py_module, but if I try to create a bdist, the second
call to setup over writes the first w/o the _module.so file.

(bottom of setup.py)

# build extension module
setup (name = 'OTB_libs',
author="Tim Williams",
package_dir={'O TB_libs':''},
ext_modules=[Extension('OTB_ libs._OTB_libs' ,
include_dirs=IN CLDIRS,
library_dirs=LI BDIRS,
libraries=libli st,
extra_compile_a rgs=['-malign-double'],
swig_opts=swig_ opts

#this needs to be built after the extension is since OTB_libs.py is
#generated by SWIG
setup (name='OTB_libs ',
author="Tim Williams",
py_modules=['OTB_libs.OTB_l ibs'],
package_dir={'O TB_libs':''}

Am I stuck with just calling running 'python setup.py build' twice?

Thanks for any help.

Initial experiments appear to show it is not:...
