[SciPy-user] Problems compiling SciPy in Cygwin

Yes, it was SciPy 0.3.2.  I am still unable to build numpy.core.umath in
the copy of numpy I downloaded this morning, but I don't have time to
dig any further into why.

Thanks for reporting your solution.   I'm pretty sure this is with SciPy

0.3.2 and Numeric as a base.

The new SciPy 0.4.X  requires NumPy as a base.  But, similar
instructions are probably in order there as well..
