To get things working on NASA's Pleiades, I followed the directions here:
http://www.scipy.org/Installing_SciPy/BuildingGeneral, as Stephen
suggested, and set the target to YT's site-packages directory.
Additionally, I had to include -lgfortran in the compile flags for
BLAS/LAPACK to get the SciPy compilation working without throwing a library
error, as I was using the gfortran compiler.
