I'm not sure why that wouldn't be portable, since we wouldn't be 
distributing binaries. The idea is that both a ranlib/blas/lapack 
library and the extension module is compiled when installing Numerical 
Python, installing the library in /usr/local/lib/python2.4/Numeric (and 
the module as usual in /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/Numeric). 
Extension modules that what to use ranlib/blas/lapack at the C level can 
then use the include file from /usr/local/include/python2.4/Numeric and 
link to the library in /usr/local/lib/python2.4/Numeric.

Well maybe I'm missing something basic here ...
