I think the tutorial is fine :)
I also think I' just going to wait for the next version of ubuntu and I 
will try again with a clean install of imprepid ibex.
Of course, I'm stil a svn user and the parts of scipy I really use are 
running just fine :)

Michael : gcc version 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7) but it is still buggy if you try to use openmp.
