I managed to compile numpy by first compiling Python 2.5 as a ppc
build only -- the bug occurs when I try to compile numpy using the
universal Python build from python.org. I think it's trying to create
a universal build of numpy, that's why you see the

    gcc -arch ppc -arch i386

line on the log, ie, both "ppc" and "i386" architectures. IIRC I don't
have the universal SDK installed, so that could be the problem.
