Do you actually need UMFPACK? Some of those instructions are very
extensive, but UMFPACK and FFTW are not required for Scipy anymore.
You should also try to use pre-built ATLAS binaries from your
distribution or a third-party repository if you can.
Also, which linux are you using and what other steps did you follow
before "python setup.py build"?
