[SciPy-user] SciPy build problem SWIG?

I had problems with build SciPy (RH Linux 7.0, Python 2.1), arising
from fftw. The problem I had was that libfftw.so (and all the variants,
e.g., sfftw, fftw_threads, etc.) was not found correctly in the
linking process.  Instead, my system has version like
libfftw.so.2.0.5, and I solved the problem by making symbolic links,
e.g.,

ln -s libfftw.so.2.0.5 libfftw.so

(and so on for all the lib*fftw* variants)

I don't know if that's the problem that you are having, but you might
give it a shot.
