Umm, I think it needs some more explanation. There are virtual environments,
c compilers, wine, paver, etc. All/ of these might require some
installation, version numbers, and setup. This might all seem clear to you,
but a newbie coming on to build the packages probably needs more
instruction. What sort of setup do you run, what hardware, etc. If code
needs to be compiled for the PCC I assume the compiler needs to be to do
that. What about c libraries (for numpy) and c++ libraries (for scipy)? Does
one need a MAC? etc. I'm probably just ignorant, but I think a careful step
by step procedure would be helpful.
