python install settings?

i am running Ubuntu Hoary and am trying to build the Python numarray package, v. 1.3.2 by hand since ubuntu's repos won't be updated until breezy.

i have python 2.4, and gcc 3.3.5

after unpacking the tar, i run "python install", as it says in the installation instructions. i get the following:

[colfax 53] numarray-1.3.2 > python install
running install
running build
running build_py
copying Lib/ -> build/lib.linux-i686-2.4/numarray
running build_ext
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 222, in ?

  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/distutils/", line 174, in customize_compiler
    cc_cmd = cc + ' ' + opt
TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'NoneType' objects

I had a similiar (but different) error earlier, but then I learned I had to set my "CC" environment variable. So I set that to "gcc".

Any ideas on this new error? Are there packages/settings I need to take care of before i can use Python's distutils?
