[Numpy-discussion] building numpy 1.6.2 on OSX 10.6 / Python2.7.3

Dear Pierre,
as indicated yesterday OSX system python is in:

/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/

I am installing into:

/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/lib/python2.7/site-packages

This should not present a problem and does not explain why numpy does not
build/import correctly on my setup.

regards,
Andrew.
