[PlanetCCRMA] Python problem building AudioLab on Fedora

FYI, I solved the problem building and installing audiolab on fedora. It was
operator error:
without a hitch once I installed two extra packages.

I didn't install 'numpy-f2py-1.3.0-7.fc12.x86_64' and only had
'numpy-f2py-1.3.0-7.fc12.x86_64' installed. Unfortunately, the error
message wasn't exactly helpful until I realized numpy was only

File "setup.py", line 32, in <module>

from numpy.distutils.core import setup

ImportError: No module named distutils.core

I finally realized it was dying, crypically, inside numpy itself (bug,
IMHO). Once that hurdle was cleared, it was obvious only 'sndfile' binary
package was installed, so I also
installed libsndfile-devel-1.0.20-3.fc12.x86_64. With that all in-place,
just follow
compile and build your own AudioLab on Fedora 12. (next, trying it out,
looks very interesting!!)

(if anybody sees additional things wrong, please let me know...)
