Here they are:

ERROR: test_complex_nonsymmetric_modes
ERROR: test_nonsymmetric_modes (test_arpack.TestEigenNonSymmetric)
ERROR: test_starting_vector (test_arpack.TestEigenNonSymmetric)
ERROR: test_add_function_ordered (test_catalog.TestCatalog)
ERROR: Test persisting a function in the default catalog
(test_add_function_persistent1 from
ERROR: Shouldn't get a single file from the temp dir.
(test_get_existing_files2 from scipy/weave/tests/test_catalog.py)
FAIL: test_complex_symmetric_modes (test_arpack.TestEigenComplexSymmetric)

This is scipy-0.7.1 from a tarball.  I'm wondering if if some of the
nonsymmetric failures are related to me not installing UMFPACK.  At
some point in my build adventure I got some messages about UMFPACK not
being found, but nothing about it appears in the installation
instructions, so I haven't done anything with it.
