Yes I had used the internal versions in the mean time, but I do want to try
to use the intel fortran compiler in all likelyhood.

Python 2.6 is compiled with vs 2008 is is important that numpy is also
compiled with the same compiler or not. The fact that a fortran compiler is
necessary makes me think no?

It looks like I'm going to look at 2.6 now due to dependencies on pywin32 as

Also is it important that BLAS/LAPACK are compiled with the same compiler as
python or not? (Obviously just the C++ parts)
