[Numpy-discussion] latest cvs issues

Some observations:

In addons.py I found the following statement:
| # Set to 0 if you have your own platform optimized BLAS and LAPACK.
| # When I tried this under RH8.0 i386 Linux, there was at least one
| # unresolved symbol.
Which symbol was that? It seems to work for me on RedHat 8.0 using
RedHat's BLAS and LAPACK.

Latest cvs gives the following test error:
| Test of inplace operations and rich comparisons
| Traceback (most recent call last):
|   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
|   File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/numarray/testall.py", line 19, in test
|     result = eval(p+".test()")
|   File "<string>", line 0, in ?
|   File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/numarray/ma/dtest.py", line 635, in test
|     test8()
|   File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/numarray/ma/dtest.py", line 434, in test8
|     x *= 2.0
| TypeError: can't multiply sequence to non-int
| >>>

Moreover I have a compilation issue which is probably a gcc bug, but
here we go: 
| > gcc -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fPIC -IInclude/numarray -I/usr/include/python2.2 -c Src/_ufuncComplex32module.c -o build/temp.linux-i686-2.2/_ufuncComplex32module.o -g -march=pentium4 -pipe -Wall
| Src/_ufuncComplex32module.c: In function `multiply_Complex32_reduce':
| Src/_ufuncComplex32module.c:401: unable to find a register to spill in class `FLOAT_REGS'
| Src/_ufuncComplex32module.c:401: this is the insn:
| (insn 65 63 67 (set (reg/v:DF 10 st(2) [74])
|         (float_extend:DF (subreg:SF (reg/v:DI 21 rxmm0 [71]) 0))) 133 {*extendsfdf2_1} (nil)
|     (nil))
| Src/_ufuncComplex32module.c:401: confused by earlier errors, bailing out
(If I compile with -march=pentium3 it works just fine.)

Maybe someone has a comment here? (If I have some more time I'll file
a gcc bug report.)
