Cygwin/Python question: NumPy

Hi All,

I have installed all the python packages available from setup.exe,
which includes NumPy. However, I am trying to install another program
(BioPython), which depends on numPy being present, but it can't find
it (see below). Am I missing anything here?



$ python build
running build
running build_py
*** Numerical Python (NumPy) *** is either not installed or out of date.

This package is optional, which means it is only used in a few
specialized modules in Biopython.  You probably don't need this if you
are unsure.  You can ignore this requirement, and install it later if
you see ImportErrors.
You can find Numerical Python (NumPy) at

Do you want to continue this installation? (Y/n)  n
running build_ext
