[gdal-dev] KyngChaos Frameworks: GDAL's numpy vs Enthought's numpy

I am using quite successfully KyngChaos' Frameworks for GDAL (Thank 
you, William!) with a custom Python install from python.org on OSX. 
This install already includes most of the stuff I need for my daily 
work (numpy,scipy,matplotlib).
But sometimes I need something special like mayavi2 and for that I have 
installed the Enthought Python Distribution (luckily for free for 
academic use), but I can't use the existing GDAL framework because it 
is based on numpy 1.3 and not on numpy 1.4.
If I try so, I get a weird 'Bus Error' message and Python just crashes.
Am I guessing right, that the only remedy would be to build GDAL for 
Numpy 1.4 on my own?
Or would it be more recommendable to find an old Enthought, that still 
uses Numpy 1.3?
Then I should be able to import gdal into the Enthought's Python, right?
Any advise would be appreciated!

Best regards,
