On Solaris 2.6 (sparc), with python 1.5.2b1, using egcs-1.1.1,
 the Gist library won't load properly, because of the error:
>>> import Numeric
>>> import gist
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/local/lib/python1.5/site-packages/gist/gist.py", line 5, in ?
    from gistC import *
ImportError: ld.so.1: python: fatal: relocation error: file /local/lib/python1.5/site-packages/gistCmodule.so: symbol PyArray_Return: referenced symbol not found

I tried linking gistCmodule.so against
_numpymodule.so, where PyArray_Return is defined, but it didn't help.

I had this working with an earlier release of LLNL, but I don't recall what I 

Any helpful ideas?
