First, do not use easy_install to upgrade the numpy included with
ubuntu. You should never do that, because easy_install will break the
state of your installed packages w.r.t. apt database.

It looks like you do not have development tools installed (the crt.o
is a C runtime file which is provided by gcc) - install gcc, gfortran
and libatlas-base-dev.

I would also strongly discourage you to use easy_install on 10.04. The
version in ubuntu 10.04 uses distribute which is buggier than
setuptools at this point (sic),
