Update: this is a known regression in gcc 4.5, and it looks like there's 
nothing I can do about it except work around it and wait for a fix to 
gcc.  With that in mind, ndarray now disables some functionality 
(mathematical and comparison operators, but not including assignment and 
augmented assignment) when compiled with gcc 4.5.

I have also updated the build system for both ndarray and 
Boost.Python.Numpy so one can specify additional include and library 
directories on the command line (see "scons --help" for more info). 
Neal, this should now be preferred to the SConstruct edit I suggested
