This is because you are trying to import numpy while being in the numpy 
source tree, which does not work. The solution is to simply relaunch 
your python interpreter from another directory. The last svn has a 
better error message, because the above error is indeed quite obscure.

Also, note that I put some CENTOS 5.0 RPM (well, RHEL 5, but they are 
supposed to be the same if I understand correctly) for scipy and numpy
