mpl is trying to use exactly this method: import numpy.  See the 
check_for_numpy function() in setupext.py.

All I can imagine is that either because of sudo, or because of the 
terminal you were in when you tried to build, your sys.path was not 
including the /usr/local path.

Try:
sudo python -c "import numpy; print numpy.__version__"

sudo python -c "import sys; print '\n'.join(sys.path)"

The latter must include /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages.

Virtualization & Cloud Management Using Capacity Planning
Cloud computing makes use of virtualization - but cloud computing 
also focuses on allowing computing to be delivered as a service.
