Testing numpy without doing an installation?

Is it possible to test a numpy version directly from the source
directory without having to install it? I mean, if I compile the sources
and try to use the package directly from there, I get unexpected
results. For example:

$ export PYTHONPATH=/home/faltet/python.nobackup/numpy/trunk
$ python2.4 -c "import numpy;print numpy.dtype([('col1', '(1,)i4')])"
Running from numpy source directory.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'dtype'

It would be nice to have a way of testing a recently built version of
numpy prior to install it.
