The idea is to review and apply the patch linked to in this thread, in
order for numpy builds to still work when other libs than X11 are
multi-arched in Debian (FFTW was mentioned as an example by Julian). Here's
a direct link to the patch again:
http://anonscm.debian.org/viewvc/python-modules/packages/numpy/trunk/debian/patches/50_search-multiarch-paths.patch?view=markup&pathrev=21168

It looks to me like showing the warning is inappropriate and there should
be a second dash in "-print-multi-arch" (disclaimer:  didn't test the
patch), but for the rest it's good to go.
