sorry, I can't help here. I'm running Gentoo, which has a "compile 
everything yourself" philosophy!

Sorry, I'm kind of out of my depth here, but one thing I would try is to 
trash the build directory of Numeric, and build again, just to make sure 
you're re-building everything. You might want to delete the


Directory too, before installing.
