Hi Sebastian,

I am very much a Mac-Amateur,  but I have run numarray under osX by 
first installing a local UNIX version of Python using the source 
tarball.  The steps were roughly as follows:

1. Obtain and unpack the Python source tarball in you home directory. 
 cd there.

2. Configure Python using:  ./configure --prefix=$HOME  

3. Edit the Makefile for the following:

< LDFLAGS=      -framework System -framework CoreServices -framework 

This was the only (reasonable) way I could figure out how to tunnel link 
time options down through the distutils in the proper command line 
order.  I'm not really sure this is a minimal set of frameworks,  but it 
did at least work.

4. Build and install python:  make ; make install

5.  Obtain and unpack the numarray source tarball.  cd there.

6.  Build and install numarray:  python setupall.py install

7.  Put $HOME/bin on your PATH and rehash.
