Here they are:
daniel-yaminss-mac-pro:numpy-1.1.0 danielyamins$ python setup.py install
Running from numpy source directory.
....[a whole bunch of output, things apparently working for a little
copying build/lib.macosx-10.3-i386-2.5/numpy/__config__.py ->
error: could not delete
This is what happens when I try to run the install without "sudo". When I
do "sudo python setup.py install" instead, the process finishes but then, as
I said before, when I open a python interpreter and try to import numpy it
fails in the way I posted previously.

So, I think it's using the "right" python since I modified my .profile to
make the 64-bit version stored in /usr/local the default. (and when I
open python the "build" information gives the time of the new one I built.)
