I think Robert may have suggested to install the newest XCode because  
it will give you a newer gcc that can have a better chance compiling  
numpy correctly (or at least will remove another "unkown" to help  
find your true problem).

Maybe there'd be some "Universal Binary-aware"ness that the old xcode  
gcc might be missing that you'll get w/ the new one and since Python  
2.5 is universal, this might be it. Getting the new xcode would be  
the simplest part of the install anyway, so .. why not :-)
