I just migrated to a Mac OS X environment and am trying to install numpy 
from the source files (a first for this former Windows user).  However, 
when I do so, I get the following error:

Running from numpy source directory.
F2PY Version 2_3198
blas_opt_info:

    extra_link_args = ['-Wl,-framework', '-Wl,Accelerate']
    define_macros = [('NO_ATLAS_INFO', 3)]
    extra_compile_args = ['-faltivec', 
'-I/System/Library/Frameworks/vecLib.framework/Headers']

Having not done a source file installation before, I don't know what to 
make of this.  Can anybody help me out?
