Not all that likely. Almost all failures are in ARPACK (sparse linear
algebra), so if you don't use that you're OK most likely.

Another option is to use a binary installer, either a scipy one from
sourceforge, or something like EPD which installs the whole stack. Both
should work fine.

No worries.
