Also I did not specified any of BLAS, LAPACK, ATLAS libraries, do we need these libraries for numpy?
I simply used following command to build:
python setup.py build
python setup.py install —prefix=/usr/local
If above commands are sufficient, than I hope same steps to build will work on Mac OSX?

I built numpy 1.6.2 on linux 64 bit and installed numpy in site-packages, It pass all the test cases of numpy, but I am not sure if this is good build; As I did not specified any fortran compiler while setup, also I do not have fortran compiler on my
NumPy does not need Fortran for its build. SciPy, however, does.
