OK, I moved the gzipped to /usr/local, unzipped and then untarred it 
using the command you gave previously, and low and behold scipy built 
w/out errors!  Then I python setup.py install-ed, and that completed 
sans errors!  Finally, I imported scipy.integrate, and believe it or 
not, it worked!  Yeah!  Thanks so much for walking me through it, and 
thanks for your patience!
