Installation woes: phantom Numpy version?

Did you do that because you want to mess around with 2.6?

You might want to try building it as a more OS-X is way, I think that required a flag something like "enable-frameworks" or something like that.

which gave
me a nice clean interpreter whose default sys.path is completely
separate from any of the Apple stuff.

The python.org binary is completely independent too. In fact, you don't need --prefix=$HOME to make it independent either, I think it goes in usr/local be default, or into Library/Frameworks if you enable the Framework build.

Numpy and matplotlib build
against it with no trouble. Hooray!

Cool, I didn't expect them to be 2.6 compatible!
