Actually, I think I understand the problem: I assumed mac os X naming 
convention were the same than linux, except for the extension, but 
that's not true: it is called libsndfile.1.dylib, not 
libsndfile-1.0.17.dylib. I must confess I never really understood the 
library naming +version convention under any OS: it looks like they are 
all different in a subtle way. Do you know by any chance the rules for 
mac OS X ?

I actually have a minimac at home, I will try to see how 
numpy.core.distutils work on that platform tonight,
