Do you only need numpy or also scipy ? If you only need numpy, it is
relatively straightforward because you don't need BLAS/LAPACK nor any
fortran compiler. You should use the Visual Studio compiler, though: VS
2005 for python 2.5 or VS 2008 for python 2.6 - mingw does not work well
yet for 64 bits.

Of course, you can also install numpy 32 bits, which should work
perfectly on windows 64 bits,
