Coming back to this after an absence to do some other things: I believe
that, at present, it is still not possible to build scipy from the SVN
archive on a machine on which scipy was never before installed. If I do
'rm -rf scipy* weave gui_thread' in /usr/lib/python2.4, and then try:
svn co http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scipy/trunk scipy
it immediately complains that there is no scipy_distutils module. The
best thing to do, still, seems to be to download Fernando Perez's
snapshot of the last CVS archive at
and build that.
Even using that archive, I'm finding that "python setup.py bdist_rpm" in
scipy/scipy_core doesn't work any more; I think it used to.
