Could you send your config.h file (it should be in
build/src/scipy/base). The defines in that file play an important role
in determining the compilation.
It may be incorrect.
There are a couple of strategies. If we can jerry-rig the config.h
file to work for your installation (I'm not sure exactly how to "turn
off config.h" generation though), then we can narrow down the problem to
creating a proper config.h file. If we can't get a config.h file that
works for your system, then our problem is deeper and we need to add
more defines to the code.
Thanks for your help.
