I'm trying to build a clean extension of NumPy for my new 1.5final installation.
The install directions seem lacking. (Is there an updated version somewhere?)

The link of the various modules shared libraries were failing because ld seems
to have been looking for a .a archive of the libnumpymodule.so which was indeed
sitting in the same directory. (see below)
I placed a sym link libnumpymodule.a->libnumpymodule.so
and the linker was happy but this is obviously bogus.

     [echo prints turned on]
./makexp_aix ranlib.exp ranlib.so ranlibmodule.o ranlib.o com.o linpack.o

cc -Wl,-einitranlib -Wl,-bE:ranlib.exp -Wl,-bI:./python.exp -Wl,-bhalt:4 -Wl,-bM
:SRE -Wl,-T512 -Wl,-H512 -lm -o ranlib.so ranlibmodule.o ranlib.o com.o linpack.
o -L. -lnumpymodule
ld: 0706-006 Cannot find or open library file: -l numpymodule
        ld:open(): A file or directory in the path name does not exist.

Now that I have some .so files, one seems to be missing:
'4) Move numpymodule.so (or whatever you're dynamic library suffix is) 
to "/usr/lib" or "/lib".'  There is no numpymodule.so created by the makefile?

Can someone give some hints on AIX NumPy? 

(please cc: me as I am not on matrix-sig)
