We need "just works" binary installers for all platforms.

ashigabou repository (FC 5, 6 and 7, opensuse 10.2)
David Cournapeau has packaged the last released of numpy, scipy as well as lapack and blas dependencies for Fedora Core 5, 6 and 7 and opensuse 10.2. Those BLAS and LAPACK packages are complete, and do not have the bugs contained in the official packages from those distributions: if you want to compile numpy and scipy, I strongly advise you to use those packages instead of the "official" ones, which are often unusable. The repository is there:
Also packaged timers and testers for BLAS and LAPACK, which can be useful if you intend to compile special optimized versions of BLAS/LAPACK (eg GOTO or ATLAS). You can also find the package lapack3-pic, which can be used to build a complete LAPACK with ATLAS: it is a static version, but as it is built with the -fPIC compiler flag, it can be used to build python extensions; this is particularly useful for x86_64 arch.
NumPy and SciPy packages are discussed on the deb-scipy-devel Debian mailinglist. Ondrej Certik has adopted the SciPy package on August 29, 2007, so from now on, there should be a high coordination between the Debian package maintenance and the SciPy developers. SciPy Debian package is now maintained as part of the Debian Python Modules Team project, the svn repository is at http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/python-modules/packages/scipy/, checkout with
svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/python-modules/packages/scipy/trunk scipy
