Which version of numpy are you using ? Are you building from a svn
version or a source tarball ? The missing SConscript warning is strange
(it should not be a warning - missing scons files is pretty fatal :) ).

Hm, the problem is that the scons command in numpy.distutils was
designed to make sure the same compiler was used as distutils. But here,
we would like to bypass distutils completely... I could add an option to
the scons command to tell numscons to ignore compilers given by
distutils - or maybe just bypassing it altogether. When I started
numscons, I tried to be as compatible as possible with distutils, but
that's a lost battle. Just using a default compiler, and customization
from CC would be better and easier to set up...

The code to detect fortran compiler in distutils is in
numpy/distutils/fcompiler/__init__.py (line 688 in last revision). As a
temporary workaround, you could remove every compiler of the list except
intel. The problem is that some compilers depend on other compilers, and
I have never really taken the time to understand how this was supposed
to work.
