It is not a real error message. It just says that the above command line 
failed. The real error message should have been shown earlier.

Anyways, it's looks like xplt is the only scipy module that fails to 
build. You can disable it by adding 'xplt' to ignore_packags list at the 
end of setup.py file, at least you could then install and test scipy.
