Indeed I don't understand why numpy-1.5.1 was locked out by this update. This version of numpy never had a problem and could have been switched to the new style of declaration without problem. Upgrading sage to use numpy-1.6.x is stalled at the moment so we need numpy-1.5.1 for the time being. If problems persist I'll add a version of scipy in the sage-on-gentoo overlay I don't like doing this but that's the only thing that I have control on. Francois
