Indeed, having scipy build out of the box would be nice, but it's not
for me to decide if numpy.distutils should overcome these limitations
in macports ...

On the other hand, as installing on macports is not that trivial, I
strongly feel that a subsection 'Macports' should be added to scipy's
INSTALL.txt file, where it details needed packages, the gcc_select
trick and options needed in site.cfg for umfpack. I'll gladly provide
a patch for that if people are OK.
