First of all, thanks to everyone for all the hard work.

I'm on a dual G5 Mac running OS X 10.5.6 and Enthought's EPD python:
    Python 2.5.2 |EPD Py25 4.1.30101| (r252:60911, Dec 19 2008,  

I deleted my old numpy, downloaded the Mac .dmg file and went through  
what claimed to be a successful installation, only to find no numpy.    
I tracked the new version down to /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages, a  
directory that I didn't know existed (site-packages is the only thing  
there).  So I downloaded the source tarball and installed in the usual  
way with no problem into


So my question is, why did the Mac .mkpg installer put numpy in the  
wrong place?

I'm getting one test failure with 1.3.0b1 ---
