                         ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is a much better report. The above line is your first problem. Weave 
depends on Numeric, which you seem not to have installed on your system. 
You can find Numeric at 

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1369

Note that you want to download one of the Numeric-21 releases, NOT a numarray- 
one. Numarray is a new generation of Numeric, still experimental.

After Numeric loads correctly you may still see other problems, but take one 
step at a time.

cheers,
