Use -atlas to disable that variant, which also has the effect of disabling
the need for a new gcc as well:

$ sudo port install py26-numpy -atlas

If you're using the new sqlite format for the registry, this will be
properly recorded but you won't see in in just a 'port installed'; you need
to use verbose to see it:

$ port -v installed py26-numpy
The following ports are currently installed:
  py26-numpy @1.5.1_1-atlas (active) platform='darwin 10' archs='x86_64'
