Thanks.  I made a site.cfg file based on the next email in this thread.  

Scipy now  builds and installs!  However, as you warned, I can't import scipy 


to a symbols error in lapack (I have the suse version).  I'll have to build it 


>From digging around a little, it seems the problem is that different Fortran

compilers use different names for their output routines, and thus leads to

undefined symbols when you mix code compiled w/ different compilers.  I have the

most recent opensuse blas and lapack's (build 940).

Is there a way the opensuse people can compile their libraries to get around

this?  Or, if I compile scipy with the same compiler as opensuse uses for blas,

will that fix things?

I love computers...
