A great way to get Numpy + Scipy as well as a bunch of other very useful packages is via the Enthought Python Distribution: 


I have been using it on Mac OS X for years and the installation is via a usual GUI based OS X installer.

In addition to the ease of installation - another advantage with this approach is that it installs a completely new Python and leaves the system Python installation alone.
