I guess this is a problem with permissions. It seems like if setup.py is
trying to install numarray on the Python site-packages directory. It should
not, but meanwhile, run this command as root and it should works. Ah!, do
not forget to delete (or better, move) the old site-packages/numarray in
order to do a problem-free fresh installation. Remember:
