There are some problems with gcc 3.2/3.3 and using sse as the math unit
(-mfpmath=sse), and I would not be surprised if g77 inherits them as
well. Maybe Red Hat backported fixes, though, you would have to see this
with your OS provider. One way to confirm this would be to compile your
own gcc/gfortran, and recompile everything (lapack, atlas, numpy and
scipy) with it.

cheers,

David
