Well, I appreciate the effort.

Ideally, I think the Mac numpy binaries should match the python.org
Python 2.5: 32-bit PPC/i386 for Mac OS X 10.3.9 through 10.6
Python 2.6: 32-bit PPC/i386 for Mac OS X 10.3.9 through 10.6
Python 2.7 32-bit PPC/i386 for Mac OS X 10.3.9 through 10.6
Python 2.7 PPC/i386/x86-64 for Mac OS X 10.5 or later
Python 3 ??? (similar I think)
Supporting 10.3.9 may be a bit much these days, so it's probably easiest
to build on a 10.4 machine, except for the 2.7 64bit build on 10.5.
In theory, it should all be buildable on 10.6, but I know I've struggled
with doing that sort of thing -- but maybe the macpython folks could help.
In the past, numpy builds have "just worked", so maybe it's as simple as
finding a 10.4 machine to build on (I don't have one anymore, we're not
allowed to have them on our network, since Apple stopped supplying
