If you want to build the interface to the fftw libraries you need to have the 
fftw libraries previously installed (or you can change the line in setup.py 
to build_fftw=0)

We were having trouble making Numeric a subpackage of scipy so I think the 
installation will currently upgrade your copy of Numeric as well.
