Hi Rico,

I have not experienced the wonders of the rebuilt RHEL yet before so
can't give a comprehensive answer (installing centos 6.3 in virtualbox
atm).  But could you check if you have libpcre  installed?  strange
thing is that swig (AFAIK from debian package dependencees) depends on
libcpre so on a reasonable system it should get installed automagically
when installing wing.

to help me out trying to replicate your case -- what was exactly the way
you installed numpy and what version?
