the tests errors are caused by setuptools being stupid: for some
reasons totally beyond me, setuptools (or easy_install) thinks it is a
good idea to make the test scripts executables whereas they should
not. Use the setup.py, there is no reason to use setuptools unless you
know what you are doing, and installing as egg has no use in normal

What happened most likely is that you did not rebuild scipy from
scratch: remove the installed scipy (in /Library/....), remove the
build directory of scipy, and then rebuild and reinstall scipy.
