Thanks! Indeed it is fully pointless to try to change that. libsuitesparse
must have somthing special as a library but anyway...if it is fixed by
adding /usr/include/suitesparse in the scipy seearch path it is perfect :)

Ondrej : Maybe I should try to have a script tool able to take the sources
of the scipy package, replace scipy sources by the current svn ones and try
to rebuild the package every week or so.
