Some bisection shows that the problem is not present in r6944, so for 
now, one can "svn up -r 6944" until David gets the problem resolved.

While understanding that making sure the trunk builds on many platforms 
is a problem, I think that numpy could do better at keeping the trunk 
buildable and doing disruptive things on long-lived feature branches 
that could then be merged.
