Don't include that last "numpy" in the path.  E.g.

export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/home/pcpm/pairet/pythonModules/numpy/lib64/python2.4/site-packages

numpy is installed as a "package": a directory that contains the file 
__init__.py along with all its other files.

See http://docs.python.org/tutorial/modules.html#packages
