Ok, I actually have lots of cruft on my machine.  I just removed
Python 1.5.2, 2.0.x.  I also have the debian version of 2.1.2 in
/usr/bin plus a version of 2.1.1 in /usr/local.  

However this setup has been working for quite a while.  I just tried
my example code with 2.1.2 and it still fails.  Anyway I'll try again
tommorow and get back to you.  BTW, do you link anything thats used by
f2py to the libpython*?
