It builds fine for me on Mac OS X.
An answer to an Ask SageMath question here claims that qhull is included with scipy: http://ask.sagemath.org/question/10254/howdoesoneusetheqhulloptionalpackage/
Also there is this ticket: https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/12352

Indeed
 http://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.spatial.ConvexHull.html
 http://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.spatial.Delaunay.html
 http://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.spatial.Voronoi.html
But scipy does not seem to ship the binaries... But however their interface is pretty good and that's actually what we should use!
Also there is this ticket: https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/12352
which is rather disjoint.

Right, for polymake (#20892) we do need the binaries. Could you update the SPKG.txt to include info about scipy?

 Report Upstream changed from Reported upstream. No feedback yet. to Reported upstream. Developers acknowledge bug.
for info: got a reply from upstream (Brad Barber). The next version of the Makefile will contain the target dependencies and there will be a configurable make install
. However, it seems hard to get a configure to work on all platforms...
