[Foucault-L] said's orientalism, foucault's comments?

Hi all,

Working on Edward Said's Orientalism for a while, I am wondering if
Foucault had said anything about Said's work. The book, after all, was
published in 1978 and it got immediate response both from academic
circles and popular media. Being a work deeply based on Foucault's
analysis of discourse, I guess Orientalism must have had taken
attention of Foucault too in a six-years time. A brief search, though,
didn't come up with anything. Do you know any article or interview
where Foucault talks about Said?
