In my experience the difficulty is figuring out which non-Python
dependencies you need installed (libraries, header files, compilers,
build tools). Cheating (of the 'sudo apt-get build-dep python-numpy'
kind) helps, if what you're trying to install is a (newer version of a)
package that's already been packaged for your distribution.
Is that what you experience too, or are there other sources of pain?
Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained
