You can argue with the exact wording, but the layout of that page is on
purpose. scipy.org is split into two parts: (a) a SciPy Stack part, and (b)
a numpy & scipy library part. You're looking at the stack part, and the
preferred method to install that stack is a Python distribution.
If you look at the library part, the binary installers are at the top of
the page: http://www.scipy.org/scipylib/download.html
