Yes, I looked at the logs he reported. His problems look like an
issue with the Python installation. There are a lot of underfined
references to basic Python C-API calls. Somehow he is not linking
against the Python library? I don't know why that is the case.
Perhaps scipy.distutils is not picking up where his Python library is
located (it looks like he has Python installed in some non-standard
place). Or when he links with f77 the Python library is not included.
I'm not really sure what's going on.
So, I think the problems Andrew is having have to do with non-standard
installation issues and not 64-bit issues.

I don't think his issues are 64-bit related at all.
Scipy core is pretty clean with 64-bit support.
Newscipy is mostly clean (signaltools had alot of places where int * was
assumed for strides and dimensions that I think were changed --- but I'm
not sure if everything was fixed).
