[Numpy-discussion] numpy installation issues

I have been trying to install numpy (as a dependancy of matplotlib) on
cygwin. I would like to use the native cygwin-python numpy install, as the
cygwin development environment I use is portable on usb disk (
http://www.dam.brown.edu/people/sezer/software/cygwin/). (Extremely useful!)

It would be even better if i can actually install numpy/scipy/matplotlib on
this portable distribution.

Unfortunately "python setup.py build" does give an error. (I installed
python with sources, so /usr/lib/python2.5/config is existing. Which seemed
to be a problem with another python package when I googled for this error.)

I included the build messages... Anybody any clue?

(I know there exists now a windows enthought distribution but I cannot use
that as it is not portable and I don't know how to combine it with cygwin. I
essentially only need numpy and matplotlib. These should not be impossible
to install?)

Kind regards,
