I'm not able to build 0.10.0b1 from the source distribution at
SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/scipy/files/scipy/0.10.0b1/scipy-0.10.0b1.tar.gz/download)

scott@godzilla:tmp$ tar -xzf scipy-0.10.0b1.tar.gz
scott@godzilla:tmp$ cd scipy-0.10.0b1
scott@godzilla:scipy-0.10.0b1$ python setup.py build

raise ImportError(msg)
ImportError: Error importing scipy: you cannot import scipy while
being in scipy source directory; please exit the scipy source
tree first, and relaunch your python intepreter.

There's a proposed fix at https://github.com/scipy/scipy/pull/75
