The .so files cited do exist in /usr/lib (as symbolic links to other .so files that also exist in that directory). From what I've read, that's where they're supposed to be - but I think the Python installation is in a nonstandard location. Is that the problem? How can I work around it?

No it won't be possible if you cannot run (Fortran) extensions.
norm.isf uses scipy.special, which uses _cephes.
