Thanks, I will look and try.

It would be great if such an option could be added; I'm sure I'm not the 
only one who wants this. (And, just to confirm: I'm indeed attempting to 
"cross-compile", in the sense that I build the package on one machine, 
then distribute it onto a set of hosts, which don't all look equal, but 
equal enough as to allow me to reuse the compiled NumPy package, as long 
as it doesn't depend on the particular linalg libs that happen to be 
installed on the build machine.
