I have been following the bugzilla page. In fact, I made the last five posts 
to that page. 

I got the ball rolling on changes to the numeric ebuild, so it would link to 
existing lapack, blas, and atlas libraries. The official ebuild just installs 
the libraries shipped with numeric. They havent ironed out all the wrinkles 
on all the platforms, but I expect the numeric changes will soon be part of 
the official gentoo tree.

Once they get numeric figured out, we can copy numeric's atlas/lapack/blas 
dependencies into the scipy ebuild. Now that site.cfg is being read during 
the build, I think I can get the ebuild working. I'll check with the gentoo 
devs and see whats happening with numeric.
