Hi,
I have created ticket 1409 with a patch to remove the associated code in 
ccompiler.py file.
http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/ticket/1409

Also, I added ticket 1410 to get DistutilsExecError imported by Python 
2.7 in the same file
http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/ticket/1410

With these two patches Python 2.7 alpha 3 should build numpy.
