I've found that all I need to do is to add NumPy to the main Makefile's
LIBSUBDIRS variable, follow the instructions in NumPy/INSTALL, and it
works fine.  What are the other problems? 

One alternative inspired from the Linux kernel config world is a GUI
configuration management (which could know about all the dependencies,
etc.).  There's a slight bootstrap problem, but it works ok on Linux w/ a
kernel, so...
