So far, no. NumPy is relatively easy to build yourself I think, see:

SciPy a little less so, thanks to the mess created by the Fortran  
situation on Windows. As of June 2009, SciPy could be compiled with  
gfortran-mingw but would crash randomly, and there had been no success  
in debugging why.

I'd suggest using 32-bit Python/NumPy/SciPy unless you really need it.
