Hi folks,

Sorry for the delay in closing the PR.  I made some changes locally, and
py-numeric installed/deinstalled with no problems.  However, I tried
running it under Tinderbox and came up with some errors.

I believe the problem is related to the fact that py-numeric uses an
implicit dependency on setuptools.  In my environment, setuptools was
installed, so py-numeric used it.  In the Tinderbox environement,
setuptools was not installed and not used, and that resulted in
different behavior.

I plan to fix the inconsistency this week and close the PR within the
next couple of days.  In the mean time, please try installing setuptools
manually and then py-numeric to see if that fixes the problem.
