[SciPy-user] More installation troubles

Some more problems installing SciPy: firstly the installer doesn't seem to 
find the fftw library. I did set an environment variable
FFTW pointing to the local lib and include directories where libfftw3.a, 
libfftw3.la <http://libfftw3.la>, fftw3.f and fftw3.h are to be found. Still 
I get:

fftw_info:
NOT AVAILABLE

dfftw_info:
NOT AVAILABLE


FFTW (http://www.fftw.org/) libraries not found.
Directories to search for the libraries can be specified in the
scipy_distutils/site.cfg file (section [fftw]) or by setting
the FFTW environment variable.
djbfft_info:
NOT AVAILABLE


DJBFFT (http://cr.yp.to/djbfft.html) libraries not found.
Directories to search for the libraries can be specified in the
scipy_distutils/site.cfg file (section [djbfft]) or by setting
the DJBFFT environment variable.

Any idea why this is? Then it goes on to find blas, lapack and atlas, gives 
a warning that lapack is probably incomplete (which is strange,
since I compiled it from source following the instructions on the 'building 
scipy' page), finds x11, and crashes with the following error:

line 68, in _register
raise ValueError("Type %s has already been registered" % name)
ValueError: Type Byte has already been registered

I don't have a clue as to what this means. Anyone care to help?

P.S. Sorry about the double message, apparently I don't get my own posts, so 
I figured it lost.
