[Numpy-discussion] OS X - Universal MacPython - numpy install failure

I am running OX 10.3.9. I installed python 2.4.2 using Universal  
MacPython 2.4.2.dmg.
I am on a PowerPC G4. The Universal build is designed to install on the  
Mac PPC and Intel machines.

When I run the numpy 0.9.6 install it apparently fails on the  
configure. The whole trace back is at the end of this posting.
One thing that I noted  was the line:

gcc options: '-arch ppc -arch i386 -isysroot  
/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk -fno-strict-aliasing -Wno-long-double  
-no-cpp-precomp -mno-fused-madd -fno-common -dynamic -DNDEBUG -g'

It appears that the configure routines think that I have two  
architectures - ppc and i386.
At my low level of understanding, all I can do is speculate that the  
Universal install generates some confusion as to the actual cpu.
Somewhere numpy is keying on information that is ambiguous in the  
universal install.

I have installed Numeric, matplotlib and other packages without a  
problem.
