[SciPy-user] NumPy On OpenBSD

I'm having a go a building NumPy on OpenBSD 3.8 installed on an P4 box
running Python 2.4.1.  I think I'm almost there, but I get the message
"floating point flags not supported on this platform" twice when I
import numpy, and about 30,000 times when I run numpy.test(10).  If I
edit out that message though, the tests seem to have all been passed.

I tracked the "floating point flags not supported on this platform"
message down to numpy/core/include/numpy/ufuncobject.h  It looks like
OpenBSD falls through the ifdefined structure that defines
UFUNC_CHECK_STATUS(ret).  Looking at the various ways that the IEEE
flags are tested for different platforms, I think OpenBSD might fall
into the same block as SunOS since I have an ieeefp.h and an
fpgetsticky() function.  Does this make sense, or am I barking up the
wrong tree completely?  The problem is that I don't know what magic word
I should add as an OR clause to 

#elif defined(sun)

to test my guess.  Where are the various platform names that are checked
in unfuncobject.h defined?

Any advice is appreciated...
