Looks like I actually posted solutions to pythonmac-sig. Sorry for the
In a nutshell, my method is:
0) installing prerequisites
1) Create scipy_core/scipy_distutils/site.cfg for ATLAS et al.
2) remove xplt from the build process (I just haven't put in the effort
to get it to compile - I can't see why it shouldn't) by commenting it
out of setup.py.
3) python setup.py install

A quick browse down the memory lane called 'site-packages' shows that
in addition to many packages in your and Jack's PackMan databases, I
most frequently use scipy (including chaco), biggles, Gnuplot, IPython,
mysql, reportlab, piddle, rpy, pyro, pytables, and numarray.
(Actually, some of these might be in the databases, but I remember
building them myself...)
