[SciPy-User] scipy compiles, but importing interpolate fails

Hi, I've recently (surprisingly) gotten scipy to compile by following
these http://blog.hyperjeff.net/?p=160 instructions.  However, if I
try to import scipy.interpolate, it fails.  I'm trying to install
scipy into a virtualenv environment, though I don't think that's the
issue because I have another install in a Framework that sees the same

I'm using numpy 1.6.1, scipy 0.10.1, mac OS X 10.6.8.

Can anyone help me understand the following error?

$ ~/virtual-python/bin/python -c "import scipy, scipy.interpolate"
