I built the dmg and believe that it should work with 10.3.9 or
greater, but I haven't tested it.  If you have a test system, try it
and run the tests.  Please report back with the results.  If it works,
I will update the release notes.  If not, we can try and track down
the problem and build new binaries.

Good, the NumPy binary requires that you use the python.org binary.
