# see following explanation
tag 700994 + patch


while looking into #700782, we discovered that there is a symlink
vs. directory conflict between python3-numpy and python3.2-dev:
  python3.2-dev has /usr/include/python3.2 -> python3.2mu
  python3-numpy ships /usr/include/python3.2/numpy
>Please move the linked shipped as python3.2/numpy to python3.2mu.

FYI, from python3.2's changelog:

 python3.2 (3.2.3-7) unstable; urgency=low
   * distutils: Append the abiflags to the python include dir.

So this bug should be fixed simply by adding a build-dep on
python3.2-dev (>= 3.2.3-7), similar to how #700996 and #700997 were
