[pymvpa] pymvpa installation problem... nifti not found

just to make sure, something like

python -c 'import nifti'

works without any smoke?  what is also the output of 

python -c 'import mvpa; print mvpa.wtf()'


P.S. Common problem on OSX is the hell of mixes of different pythons and
corresponding modules installed via variety of methods (local, macports,
etc) since there is no uniform one "out of the box" installation
mechanism, i.e. like on Debian ;-)  thus for the best experience we just
advice users to use http://neuro.debian.net/vm.html.
