I couldn't get numpy building with Python 2.5 on 10.3.9 (although I
had different compile errors). The solution that ended up working for
me was Python 2.4. There's a bug in the released version of Python 2.5
that's preventing it from working with numpy, should be fixed in the
next release.

You can find a .dmg for Python 2.4 here:
