Finally fixed.
Not only you need to have python bindings enabled but
you also need to have the python-numpy package file

Failing to have the python-numpy at gdal config time
gives you GDAL python bindings but not GDAL python
bindings with NumPy arrays... and GDAL configuration says
nothing about this difference (would be nice to do so).
