Hi all,

  Recentrly I tried to install mayavi-3,3,0, and it failed with a long chain of error messages ended with

  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/numpy/distutils/command/config_compiler.py", line 66, in finalize_options
    v = getattr(c,a)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/distutils/cmd.py", line 112, in __getattr__
    raise AttributeError, attr
AttributeError: fcompiler

I solved (following Robert Kern's post) by (temporary) commenting out the loop that starts by:

     for a in ['fcompiler']:

Is there an elegant solution?

 I an using numpy 1.4.0.dev7539 on python-2.6.4
