In general, the key to building on a platform is the config.h file that
numpy generates. It knows how to do it for a few platforms, but for
others it may not work.
In particular, we need to know how to find:
1) float and long double versions of functions
2) whether or not and how IEEE 754 floating point signalling is handled
on your platform.
There are a few other things that must be done. You can generate the
config.h file by hand and then figure out how to get the build scripts
to do it automatically. Start with a config.h file from another
platform and start tracking through the error messages.
It is a tedious process. If you post error messages (or file them on
the Trac page for NumPy), we may be able to help.
