That is not supposed to work anyway, MMTK 2.5 required ScientificPython 2.5 
as well.

A student here is running SuSE 10.1 on his laptop, and he has a working MMTK 
there, so it should be possible. Two issues to watch out for:

1) SuSE has set up Python such that new packages go to /usr/local instead of 
/usr. However, they didn't put /usr/local/include on the header search path. 
This means that you have to modify setup.py in MMTK to add it; otherwise it 
won't find the headers of ScientificPython.

2) I have various reports of Numeric 24.x not working correctly with MMTK. I 
could never reproduce these problems, but I recommend 23.8 which seems to 
work everywhere.
