[SciPy-dev] NumPy import problem.

If I try to import numpy from python in my home directory I get the
following error:

>>> from numpy import *
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/numpy/__init__.py", line 59, in ?
    from core import *
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/numpy/core/__init__.py", line 27,
in ?
    test = ScipyTest().test
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/numpy/testing/numpytest.py", line
210, in __init__
    from numpy.distutils.misc_util import get_frame
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/numpy/distutils/__init__.py", line
5, in ?
    import ccompiler
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/numpy/distutils/ccompiler.py", line
32, in ?
    CCompiler.spawn = new.instancemethod(CCompiler_spawn,None,CCompiler)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'instancemethod'

Oddly enough, this doesn't happen in ipython or if I run python in
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/numpy/ . There must be a path problem
someplace. Numpy was installed from the version in svn as of 1/2 hour ago.
