[Numpy-discussion] Trouble installing numarray on Solaris

A user of my application reports that installing numarray 1.3.2 on 
Solaris using Python 2.3.1 has run into trouble:

  prompt> python
  Python 2.3.1 (#1, Sep 30 2003, 20:29:58) [C] on sunos5
  Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
  >>> import numarray
  Fatal Python error: Call to API function without first calling
  import_libnumarray() in Src/_convmodule.c
  Abort (core dumped)

I've seen a one or two recent reports of this error when running 
extension modules, but I've never heard of it happening when simply 
trying to import numarray.

Any suggestions?

P.S. I do realize that python 2.3.1 is old and should be updated, and I 
have already suggested it. But it seems a bit unlikely to fix this 
particular problem.
