This isn't the problem -- ./runtests.py is designed to work fine when
run from the root of the numpy checkout.

You might try nuking your checkout and environment and starting over
just in case your earlier attempts left behind some broken detritus
somewhere. 'git clean -xdf' will clear everything out of a git
directory aside from tracked files (so make sure to add any new files
you want to keep first!).
