Here is the problem: this means numpy will NOT work. Two possibilities:
    - you really are in numpy source directory (i.e the directory where 
the setup.py file is): then launch python from another directory, and 
try importing again.
     - you are not in numpy source directory: there is a problem 
somewhere in the build system I should correct.
