The above issues are now fixed in CVS. When PIL or wxPython are not 
installed then expect the following messages when importing scipy:

/usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages/scipy/pilutil.pyc No module named 
PIL
/usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages/scipy/plt/interface.pyc No module 
named wxPython
/usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages/scipy/plt/__init__.pyc No module 
named wxPython
