It seems it does...  the built in numpy which is in
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/Extras/lib/python',
comes before $HOME/.local in sys.path so I think system numpy will
always be picked up over my own installed version.

robin-mbp:~ robince$ /usr/bin/python2.6 -c "import sys; print sys.path"
['', '/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python26.zip',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/plat-darwin',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/plat-mac',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/plat-mac/lib-scriptpackages',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/Extras/lib/python',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/lib-tk',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/lib-old',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/lib-dynload',
'/Users/robince/.local/lib/python2.6/site-packages',
'/Library/Python/2.6/site-packages',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/Extras/lib/python/PyObjC',
'/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/Extras/lib/python/wx-2.8-mac-unicode']

So I guess virtualenv or macports?

Cheers

Robin
