First many thanks for your hard work! Looks very good,
just a minor problem:

On the Opteron I get:

Clearly, it picks some previously installed scipy_base
(from a separate, old install).
Explicitely:

In [1]: from numpy import *

In [2]: A = array([[1., 2.],[3., 4.]])

In [3]: type(A)

In [5]: A.dtype()
