[SciPy-User] Error installing scipy

Well I got the latest svn scipy and scipy-0.8 installed today. I don't know what 
I changed. Maybe I did something different today that I didn't do yesterday with 
my PYTHONPATH. Now I am getting an error in my code. This is my code:

import numpy as np
import scipy as sp
from scipy import stats

I get a segfault with 'from scipy import stats'. I went through with the 
debugger and this is the traceback I get:

I do have a '_cephes.so' library in my 
'scipy/lib/python2.6/site-packages/scipy/special' directory.

This error is really strange. Could you quickly try this from your 
terminal ?

python -c "from distutils import ccompiler"

If this does not work, there is something wrong with your setup (what is 
your PYTHONPATH ?), or your python install is seriously broken (but you 
would not have been able to install numpy that way, so I suspect the 
configuration problem to be more likely),

cheers,

David
