[Numpy-discussion] Leopard install

I am trying to install numpy 1.3.0 on Leopard 10.5.6 and at the point  
in the install process where I select a destination, my boot disc is  
excluded with the message:

  " You cannot install numpy 1.3.0 on this volume. numpy requires  
System Python 2.5 to install."

I'm not sure what 'System Python 2.5' is as compared to 'Python 2.5'  
but in the terminal when I type 'python' I get:

	"Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Jan 13 2009, 10:26:13) [GCC 4.0.1 (Apple  
Inc. build 5465)] on darwin"

so the Python 2.5 requirement seems to be met.  Any ideas on what is  
happening here and why the installer can't see my python installation?

(I notice that this issue was raised 3/28 also, but no resolution yet)

Thanks for any assistance
