There is an example file in the Scipy source tree, site.cfg.example that 
you can modify and save as site.cfg. site.cfg is necessary so the Scipy 
build script can properly locate dependencies. AFAK, UMFPACK is required 
to build scipy.stats, which depends on scipy.sparse. I followed the 
instructions here, http://www.scipy.org/Installing_SciPy/Linux .
