[Numpy-discussion] numarray 1.3.3 build question

I'm on MacOS X 10.3.9 and am getting mysterious warnings when building 
numarray 1.3.3 which I've never seen before.

Building for the unix/x11 version yields:

Should I worry? I haven't figured out how to run the self-tests w/out 
installing and I'm reluctant to install w/out knowing if the warnings 
are a problem.

- why do we need --gencode? Is there some way to make that the default 
so we can leave it off?
- why do we need "config"? That's new to 1.3.3 isn't it?

P.S. I have two completely different versions of python installed:
- the normal built-in Python 2.3.0, which I run using 'pythonw'
- a pure unix/x11 python that I installed from source using an x11 
version of tcl/tk. This is run using "python" (which runs 

However, the errors occur while building with either version (much to my 
surprised -- I expected the framework complain to go away when building 
with pythonw, the framework python).
