I probably exaggerated a bit, but I really didn't like the whole
process.  Partly because of hunting down exact dependencies and building
instructions and partly because I was hoping to write a SlackBuild for
ATLAS, but after compiling I thought "what the heck" and installed
everything manually.

But I just did it once and more out of curiosity, so...

Yes, or even better use the easy_install from setuptools (available here
at SBo) and install SciPy as Python egg in your ~/py-lib.  For simple
