Something might be broken in the installation... it's hard to say. It
appears that we have the numarray and numpy modules installed, but
not Numeric.

Still, I have no idea what's going wrong. Before the BBv2 switch, I
believe we were using Python installations compiled with the same
compiler as we were testing, e.g., the GCC 3.3.6 tests used Python
2.3.5 compiled with GCC 3.3.6. Now I'm not certain... we might be
using the system-compiled Python.

If it would help, I could probably build a new Python along with
Numeric on the test system, and use that for testing.
