Right, new versions of UMFPACK are indeed under GPL. I just noticed that.
Have you tried contacting Tim Davis about that. The web page does suggest

guess is that distirbuting UMFPACK under BSD with scipy would be contrary
to distributing it under GPL in the main download page, so our chances
Now I understand better the switch to SuperLU.
