Grr, I thought I fixed this problem for good. This is a really
annoying deficiency of scons (calling non existing tool).

The fact that is happens with both ATLAS and libsunperf is good news
in a way: it would indicate that there is an problem in the scipy
code, and not with the build :) I think valgrind complains a few times
during the test suite run in the sparse code, so this may be related.
Could you rerun the test suite with test(verbose=10) so that we know
which test crashes ?
