Ah, that may be.  I am building multiple combinations of Scipy, Numeric, and
f2py in rotation.  I had been simply wiping out the directory tree before
each run.  I will have to go back to that for the time being.

My apologies.  It must have reached escape velocity at some point and left
my neural atmosphere...
