[SciPy-dev] Building SciPy on Mac OS X Part II

All,

As I mentioned in my previous message, I've been trying to patch
Fortran compilation to support f2c. Unfortunately, after some
work on patching both build_flib.py and the fc f2c script, I ran
into several problems.

1. fc puts the files into the current directory.
2. The build process runs into problems with the space in the
platform name which contains "Power Macintosh". In particular,
ar has problems with the space.

I think, I'll wait until gcc 3.0 on OS X. That will have g77 support.

Cheers,

Tim Lahey
