Here's an install report for Python-2.3.4 and Numeric-23.6 with
ScientificPython-2.4.9 and netcdf-3.5.1 on Mandrake 10.1 official.

1) Running pynglex -a builds all examples correctly.

2) Although the README says:

I needed to also edit to set

copy_files = False

From the comments above this line in, it seems like this should be
the default?

3) Although the README says

> Required: Python 2.3 or higher and Numeric 23.1 or higher.

installation fails for Python 2.4 because and pynglex
both rely on site.sitedirs. This variable has been removed
from the site module, and it's not clear to me what to use
as a replacement. Googling comp.lang.python and python-dev
didn't turn up anything.

Many thanks for PyNGL -- Phil
