Scipy 0.3.2. Would it help if I used the CVS release?

No, I wasn't aware of the discussion. Thanks for pointing it out.

However, my build is dying on a gcc compile, so I don't know if that 
alone explains it.



Maybe I should ask a different question. Right now I really just want 
scipy_base and scipy.optimize. Can anyone suggest a minimal set of 
targets I can build, or, more to the point, a maximal set of 
"ignore_packages" for my setup.py file?

Thanks in advance.

Rick
