Hello,

As suggested here [1], I am contacting the scipy dev team to suggest to
switch to arpack-ng.

It is a join project between Scilab, Octave and Debian. We also merged
patches from Gentoo.

This version is already packaged into Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Fink,
Macports, etc.

It would avoid you to bundle sources here:
https://github.com/scipy/scipy/tree/master/scipy/sparse/linalg/eigen/arpack

I am available to apply any patches may have wrote.

Thanks
