I strongly advise you not to do it - you will not be able to remove it
correctly anymore, and it is likely to have side effects which are
hard to debug.

Note that the bug is not that significant, in the sense that it "only"
prevents scipy from being built. Any other package which depends on
numpy should be fine. I think the easiest is to fix the numpy package
- it is likely easy to fix, you only need to make sure libnpymath.a is
included in the python-numpy package.
