I'm not sure about the scipy.test problem but part of the install problem
is that the scipy-0.3.2 source archive doesn't include wgnuplot.exe

If you have an older version of scipy which includes wgnuplot.exe and
gnuplot_helper.exe try copying them into the source directory Lib\gplt and
then do a setup.py install. I think they are also available at

Hope this helps
