I don't think Ralf has been building Python 3 binaries. I'm guessing that there isn't much demand, as other parts of the tool stack have yet to make the jump to Python 3 (notably matplotlib). 

However, OS X is probably the easiest platform on which to build NumPy. SciPy, at last glance, required you grab a certain version of gfortran (this one: http://r.research.att.com/tools/ but check the docs in case this has changed), but is otherwise a straightforward "python setup.py build && sudo python setup.py install" affair as well. Let the list know if you have problems.
