Hi Brian,

     Once upon a time I installed PyNGl/PyNIO on Snow Leopard 10.6,
before completely giving up on that OS X as a scientific computing
platform :-) Snow Leopard loves to mix and match 32-bit and 64-bit
libraries, and I suspect that is the source of your problem. The binary
you're trying to install is a 64-bit one, but perhaps one of the
dependencies (numpy, HDF4, netcdf, etc.) exists only as a 32-bit
library. You can check the architecture of a shared library (*.so) by by
executing file I don't know how to check the architecture of
static libraries (*.a).

      Also, it seems that you're trying to install a binary meant for
numpy-1.3.0 on numpy-1.5.0. I don't remember exactly, but I tried
something similar in the past (i.e., mismatched numpy versions) and it
gave me grief.
