[SciPy-dev] scipy_core Solaris Build: Good and Bad News

The good news is that I can now build the latest newcore version on 
Solaris with no modifications to the config.h or setup.py files.

The bad news is that when I attempt an "import scipy" command I receive 
the following error message:

basil> ipython

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can correct this problem?
