[Numpy-discussion] Missing _confmodule.c in .5 and Solaris compilation trouble

When I try to build numarray 0.5, it seems to look for
Src/_convmodule.c, which isn't there (although it is there in 0.4). I
couldn't find anything about this in the bug tracker, which somehow
surprised me... Am I missing something obvious?

Another thing: I'm having trouble using setupall.py in Solaris with
Python 2.3b1 (it worked with earlier versions, including some
pre-2.3a1 CVS versions, IIRC). Things compile, but when the tests run,
I get a segmentation fault. I can import numarray (and everything from
it) but if I try something basic, such as calling the array function,
I again get a segfault. Things *do* work, however, if I simply use
python setup.py install, so I suppose there must be some problem with
some extension...? I don't quite understand how that would affect the
basic array function, for example... Is there an interaction effect
there? I couldn't find anything about this in the bug tracker either,
when searching for "build failure". Tips on how to find out more so I
can give a more precise bug report would be appreciated.

I really hope I can eventually use 0.6 (can't seem to be able to get
anything with anonymous CVS :() with Py2.3 and Solaris... And -- I
really think the numarray restructuring looks _great_! :)

Thanks for any input,

- Magnus
