Same here, but I use the pre-built Windows binary of scipy, so presumably
(for now) I'll have to build SVN HEAD to use/test, yes?  I've gone ahead and
checked it out, and downloaded both MinGW, incl. g++ and other offered
enhancements, and MSVC8 Express (in order to build BLAS, which I'm lacking
according to my initial attempt to build scipy brom source).  Anyone reading
this have any recommendations/advice vis-a-vis how to proceed so as to
minimize my headaches (which I've had in the past trying to build blas and
scipy from source in Windows).  Thanks!
