Numpy was installed with the bdist_wininst installer.

In case it's relevant the installer seemed to create 2 egg-info files:
numpy-1.4.0.dev7277-py2.5.egg-info
numpy-1.4.0.dev7280-py2.5.egg-info

Deleting the numpy directory and the egg-info files and re-installing from the
bdist_wininst installer gave the same result (with the above 2 egg-info files)

Installing numpy with python setup.py install seemed to work (at least the
npymath.ini file was now in the numpy\core\lib\npy-pkg-config folder)

Compiling scipy got much further now, but still failed with the below error 
message:

C:\dev\src\scipy>python setup.py bdist_wininst > build.txt

The output of the build is available from http://pastebin.com/d3efe5650

Note the strange character on line 4600. In my terminal window this is 
displayed as:

compile options: '-D_USE_MATH_DEFINES -D_USE_MATH_DEFINES

HTH,
