I gave it a run on the Debian packaging system and these are the results:

- python 3.1 can't compile it:

$ python3 setup.py build
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 210, in <module>
  File "setup.py", line 174, in setup_package
    import py3tool
ImportError: No module named py3tool

but this is already known, py3tool is missing from the tarball.

- python2.6 build, installation and numpy.test() works fine

- I have a problem building documentation:

# build doc only for default python version
(export MPLCONFIGDIR=. ; make -C doc html
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/buildd/python-numpy-1.5.0~b1/doc'
mkdir -p build
python \

		-p dump.xml -o source/reference/generated
./sphinxext/autosummary_generate.py:18: DeprecationWarning: The
numpydoc.autosummary extension can also be found as
sphinx.ext.autosummary in Sphinx >= 0.6, and the version in Sphinx >=
0.7 is superior to the one in numpydoc. This numpydoc version of
autosummary is no longer maintained.

Extension error:
Could not import extension numpydoc (exception: No module named domains.c)
1.5b1 1.5.0b1

I don't know exactly the reason for the "Failed to import X" but they
are there also for 1.4.1 so they should not be a problem. Anyhow,
there is no file named 'domains.c' in the tarball.
