Yes, I had previous pdf documentation distfiles of the same name, but the
fetch part still went to the ftp or http server and fetched the wrong files.
As I pointed out, I fetched the correct pdf documentation files with lynx;
URL being

proper directory being numpy and numpy-1.6.0

My previous version of numpy was 1.5.something.

Let me add also that my CC to llwang at , listed as maintainer, 
bounced, another thing that may need correction in the Makefile:

<llwang at>: cannot update mailbox /var/spool/mail/llwang for user
    llwang. error writing message: Disk quota exceeded
