To build numpy 1.4.1 for Python 2.7 you need at least to apply changeset 
7926 [1] and followups. Releasing 3rd party extensions compiled against 
this version of numpy is not a good idea because those binaries will 
likely be incompatible with any later official release of numpy for 
Python 2.7, which will use PyCapsule instead of PyCObject [2].
