I am able to build numpy/scipy on a 64bit Athlon with gentoo and gcc-4.1.1. I 
get one error with scipy 0.5.0.1940:

Also, there may be a minor bug in numpy/distutils. I get error messages during 
the build:

customize GnuFCompiler
Couldn't match compiler version for 'GNU Fortran 95 (GCC) 4.1.1 (Gentoo 
4.1.1)\nCopyright (C) 2006 Free Software Foundation, Inc.\n\nGNU Fortran 
comes with NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law.\nYou may redistribute

customize CompaqFCompiler
customize IntelItaniumFCompiler
customize IntelEM64TFCompiler
customize Gnu95FCompiler
customize Gnu95FCompiler

This error message is returned because the fc_exe executable defined in 
GnuFCompiler returns a successful exit status to GnuFCompiler.get_version, 
but GnuFCompiler explicitly forbids identifying Fortran 95. I only bring it 
up because the build yields an error message that might confuse people.
