I finally installed it without error -- see below.

Well, that sounds smarter than what I did, which was to rm the entire scipy
directory and untar it again. I wanted to be sure that *everything* was gone.

A good suggestion -- when I went back over everything, I realized that I may
have misinterpreted the instructions for building the complete atlas lapack
library. As stupid as it sounds, I didn't realize that I was supposed to
do the ar x stuff in the tmp directory *after* building atlas. I would have
gotten the error the first time I tried doing it before building atlas if
I hadn't already built atlas once already. This is the kind of mistake it's
easy to make if (1) you have no idea what you're doing, and (2) are blindly
Anyway, once I did things in the right order, importing scipy didn't trigger
any errors. Now I'm eager to see what I can do with it!
After all this, I'm ready to write "Installing SciPy for Dummies." I know
at least one person who would have found this useful.
This list is great -- thanks to everyone who helped.
