[Numpy-discussion] numpy on OSX 10.6 issues

Hi,

I'm looking for some help getting the svn trunk numpy working on Max OS 
X 10.6.  I've installed my own version of Python 2.6 from python.org.  
I've got the following flags set:

setenv MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET 10.6
setenv CFLAGS "-arch i386 -arch x86_64"
setenv FFLAGS "-arch i386 -arch x86_64"
setenv LDFLAGS "-Wall -undefined dynamic_lookup -bundle -arch i386 -arch 
x86_64"


The build seems to complete with no errors.  However when I attempt to 
import numpy I get the following error:

Python 2.6.2 (r262:71600, Apr 16 2009, 09:17:39)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5250)] on darwin

Any suggestions?

Thank you for your time and help,
