i am trying to build and install PyMVPA locally ON CEnOS.  I installed 
the dependent pythong components (numpy, scipy, etc.). I get the 
following errors:

make build
/bin/sh: git: command not found
python setup.py config --noisy
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "setup.py", line 12, in ?
     from numpy.distutils.core import setup, Extension

swig: error while loading shared libraries: libpcre.so.1: cannot open 
shared object file: No such file or directory
error: command 'swig' failed with exit status 127

I'm at a loss on how to fix it.  If I start up Python2.7 i can import 

any help?
Thank you for your time
