No, not at all. Scipy and Numpy all can be built and run on Cygwin.
And you do not need Atlas for this.
We do this for Sage: (http://www.sagemath.org).
http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/wiki/CygwinPort
(right now it's not working as a whole, but things like scipy and
numpy certainly worked and  work)

certainly you would need a reasonably complete Cygwin development
toolset: compilers, make/autoconf, etc etc in order to do any serious
development on Cygwin.

If you are having problems figuring out what you need to install, just
install the whole thing –– it's still a much smaller download than an
M$ Studio :–)
