[SciPy-dev] Building numpy/scipy on RHEL5 OR CentOS5

I've been wrestling with installing scipy (in any form - binary, source, 
egg, rpm) on some RHEL5 machines that I am compelled to work with, and 
have failed miserably.   I noticed a thread a few months back about 
building scipy on CentOS 5, and noticed that at least one of the 
respondents indicated he'd had success.  As I understand it, CentOS 
strives for binary compatibility with RHEL, so I'm hopeful that CentOS 
solutions will work for me.

Does anyone have (in order of preference):
1) A CentOS/RHEL5 yum repository for scipy/numpy/(optionally matplotlib)
2) CentOS/RHEL5 RPM's for scipy/numpy/(optionally matplotlib)
3) A set of instructions for building scipy from source on either of 
these platforms?

I'm getting a little desperate here - this is likely one of the  most 
difficult installs I've ever had to deal with.
