well, as I said I did try the gcc-4.2 build, but probably missed that  
Vincent was compiling numpy trunk -
I probably should try again on my 10.6 64-bit installation.
Anyway, compiling both numpy 1.4.1 and scipy 0.8.0rc3 works fine both  
on i386/ppc 32-bit and and x86_64,
using the fink build system. And it is running as well, so far, except  
for those tests - btw.
numpy.test(verbose=5) crashes at
test_multiarray.TestIO.test_ascii ... Bus error

and scipy.test() at
Testing that kmeans2 init methods work. ... Bus error

I have (rc3 tarball), but it's a different couple of tests.
'gamma_inv_big_data_ipp-gamma_inv_big_data' actually still passes with  
rtol=2.1e-12.

These are the minimal accuracy changes needed:

Of course nearly 2e-7 seems a quite high tolerance - don't know if  
that's acceptable.

Ah, that makes sense, thanks!
