I am not certain, but I don't think it's necessary. At any rate, I  
would give the build available at python.org a try, that's typically  
the easiest one for the list to support. Fink moves at its own pace  
and applies it's own set of patches which might break things.

I am afraid I don't have a definitive answer to your compiler  
question, but I suspect it is not the case, since I've seen reference  
to intel-compiled numpy being used with (presumably gcc built) system  
python.
