I thought the problem was that since numpy compiler flags come from
the ones used to build python, when using distutils, there was a
discrepency between python and numpy:

python -c "from distutils import sysconfig; print

Will tell you which compiler flags have been used for python.

But it seems that the problem is a bit more subtle: -no-cpp-precomp is
an Apple-specific flag, and the gcc you are using is more than likely
not the Apple one (since its version is 4.3, and AFAIK, no
apple-distributed gcc has such a high version, at least for released
OS). This may be a bug in python configure, which unconditionally uses
this option. If that's the case, I am afraid there is no easy solution
to your problem.
