Alexander, to install numpy and scipy, you should really try the rpms of
the ashigabou repository, they take care of all those problems. It is
just a matter to add the repository to your package manager, and then
everything is taken care for you. The above problem is taken care of,
for example :) (I backported some changes from svn to make it work).
