Thanks to Eric, I've managed to get scipy to compile. After
installing it, I now get the following error upon import.
I start a new terminal window, start python, and then
the following happens. Note that there is a cephes.so in
the special directory under site-packages. Is there a PATH
setting I need to fix ?
