I generally put all this gunk into a tiny shell script call "mybuild"
and run that every time I need to rebuild SciPy.

I hope this works. I have not tested it, not being on FreeBSD.

Okay, that *almost* worked for me...

I had to edit two files to replace 'malloc.h' with 'stdlib.h', and 
eliminated the first mention of HAVE_INVERSE_HYPERBOLIC from your 
suggested build command....

and it actually completed building.

However, it failed 15 of the selftests.  ( more info later, being called 
away from computer ).

Thanks for your help.
