#558: svm weight storage

 Hi, I'm using the scipy wrapping of libSVM on a 64 bits architecture, at
 it seems that the way the weights are stored before being passed to libSVM
 is innacurate.

 I managed to fix that problem on my architecture, by patching the
 {{{__init__}}} method of the class {{{LibSvmClassificationModel}}}, and
 replacing the type of the items stored in the weight_labels array.

 In other words, I had to replace the following line:
 {{{self.weight_labels = N.empty((len(weights),), dtype=N.intp)}}}

 by this one:
 {{{self.weight_labels = N.empty((len(weights),), dtype=N.int32)}}}

 I didn't checked if that patch leads to good results on other
 architectures, and if the bugg I'm talking about occured only on my
 architecture, or on all architecture.
