On Linux 1.2.13, libnumpy also gave me some problems. It turned out it
had to go in /usr/lib, not /usr/local/lib. This I discovered by trial
and error, not by a thorough (or any for that matter) study of the
documentation ;)

This is the error I was getting before moving libnumpy. Is this the
error that most people are getting when the dynamic loading doesn't work?
