Get NumPy, SciPy & MatplotLib to build and work on OS X 10.5.x in 64-bit mode

PEOPLE: Michael Abshoff

SUMMARY: The title says it all.

ISSUES: It doesn't just work. The problem is that

  • python compiled from source in 64 bit mode on OSX doesn't work out of the box, especially on OSX 10.5. Maybe the freshly release 2.5.2 will help here
  • disutils trouble, related to falgs and build tests
  • it probably works if one builds one's own toolchain, but it should work with XCode 2.5 and 3.0


  • Python 2.5.2 compiles without any need to patch on OSX 10.5 in 32 and 64 bit mode (provided the right magic flags are passed)
