fft_opt_info:
    libraries = ['fftw3', 'djbfft']
    library_dirs = ['/usr/lib']
    define_macros = [('SCIPY_FFTW3_H', None), ('SCIPY_DJBFFT_H', None)]
    include_dirs = ['/usr/include']

ah, here it is. It looks like scipy doesnt like my djbfft.  

* I can build scipy against a dynamically linked djbfft, and get failures. 
* I can't build scipy with a statically linked djbfft (I dont know why):

1

* I can revert the changes we made to distutils/system_info.py so scipy doesnt 
find libdjbfft.so, then scipy builds, and tests pass.

I dont know enough about linking to diagnose the static djbfft problem on my 
own. It may be specific to gentoo.
