buildout project that uses numpy

Here is an example buildout project that uses numpy:
https://launchpad.net/numpybuildout/

If you have bazaar, you can check it out like so:

cd /tmp/
bzr branch lp:numpybuildout
cd numpybuildout/trunk/


To use distribute instead of setuptools use the -d flag of bootstrap.py.
python bootstrap.py -d
./bin/buildout
./bin/py
>>> import numpy
>>> numpy.__file__
'/tmp/numpybuildout/trunk/eggs/numpy-1.4.0-py2.6-linux-i686.egg/numpy/__init__.pyc'


There you have it, a simple project that can download and build numpy off of the python package index and install it in it's own private directory for use.

update: It was broken for python2.6 and numpy 1.3. However it works again with numpy 1.4
