Yes, I think that's expected. Just to make sure, can you send some 
excerpts of the errors that you are getting?

Well, pip needs to compile the libraries prior to install them, so 
compile messages are meaningful. Another question would be to reduce the 
amount of compile messages by default in NumPy, but I don't think this 
is realistic (and even not desirable).
