The windows binaries of numpy can run on machines without SSE support.
If for some reason you want to build it by yourself, you just need a
BLAS/LAPACK without SSE - assuming you want BLAS/LAPACK. Note that
depending on your intent, all the scripts to generate the full binary
(which install the most optimized binary depending on the detected
arch) are in svn too, if that's something you want to do.

I have recently remove the arch specific optimization in
numpy.distutils, so this should not be a problem either.
