If I have to read the MinGW docs just to install SciPy, then something
is going wrong. Really, the installation instruction in the SciPy page
should contain everything you need to know to install SciPy. Would it
be a good idea if I updated that in the installation page?

Ok, did it and scipy compiled (I had to restart my computer after
setting the environment variable). If tested it and it works.
