Beautiful!  Many, many thanks.  I was afraid of putting them anywhere except 
for straight /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib, because I thought the scipy build 
process might not find them.  It turns out that the builder is smart enough to 
find them there, and it all works perfectly.

You've saved me hours of frustration, I owe you one :)
