Too bad.  It looks to me like gcc2.95.3 should work just fine. Could you run

$ cat ./build/src.linux-i686-2.5/numpy/core/config.h

in your numpy source directory, with the appropriate changes of course, and
send the result? I'm curious about the value of  SIZEOF_LONG_DOUBLE.

Then could you also compile and run

#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char** argv)
    printf("size of long double: %d\n",  sizeof(long double));
    return 1;

And see what it prints? The two should be the same.
