With your latest reply I re-read your original. Hm, this looks like a 
real problem: if your setup.py already imports from numpy (which your 
statement sounds like), numpy really needs to be there already.

The only thing I can think of right now is to have numpy installed 
globally and to use buildout 1.4.4 + osc.recipe.sysegg to depend on 
numpy. If you call the sysegg part right at the beginning, you might get 
it to work.

Alternative is to re-work your setup.py. Do you really need to import numpy?
