It means that something is going wrong during the configuration stage.   
We need help getting numpy to build on your hardware. 

This means getting the right config.h file generated.  We can start by 
manually creating a config.h file that works for your platform and then 
figuring out how to get it written.

This configuration file just defines various variables depending on 
whether or not your platform (combination of hardware and compiler) has 
various functions, has various types defined, and what the sizes of 
different types are on your platform.

It usually takes somebody with that hardware to get it fixed.  Are you 
willing to help?
