I'm trying to build scipy from source; I've installed f2py, lapack and
blas first, and set BLAS and LAPACK.  I seem to be getting the
following error, on Itanium2.  Reading play/unix/README.fpu revealed
some discussion; should I be enabling FPU_IGNORE?  And if so, how?

Or, could I try not building xplt somehow?

Thank you.
