[Numpy-discussion] Detecting Numeric.

Hi there,
I'm playing with Numeric and even if I've not so much experience with 
it I'm trying to write a C extention to Python that can use Numeric 
arrays. The basic idea consists in handling C (dynamically allocated) 
array as Numeric array (if Numeric is installed) or as simple Python 
lists if not.

How can I detect at compile time if Numeric is installed or not?? I've 
thought something like:

#include "Numeric/arrayobject.h"

But I've not found any hints in Numeric manual. Can anyone suggest a 
solution to me?

Thanks in advance,
