And then there is (or was) fink----
Anyway, it would be really nice if numpy could work well out-of-the
box with the pyton.org python (and or the Apple-supplied one) without
any need fro macports, homebrew, etc. It's actually pretty cool that
Apple provides veclib, and and I liked that it got used by default
with a simple "setup.py build".
It would be nice to keep it that way.
If a user (or distributor of binaries) wants to build the whole scipy
stack, they'll need to figure out all this *&^%& anyway, changing a
config in numpy to build differently would be the easiest part.
And yes, there really are folks that use numpy a lot without scipy.
