Try building numpy with the actual Python in the PyhtonExt extension, 
i.e. use the following numpy build/install steps:

PYTHONHOME=/home/phyrephox/.mozilla/firefox/3tn4oxjv.reform/extensions/pythonext at mozdev.org/python
   cd numpy-src
   chmod 700 $PYTHONHOME/bin/python2.6
   $PYTHONHOME/bin/python2.6 setup.py build
   $PYTHONHOME/bin/python2.6 setup.py install

Which will install numpy into the site-packages dir:

Does that one work any differently?
