I've only just caught this thread now but perhaps you should try the newer 
candidate MinGW with GCC 3.4.4 I've managed to compile SVN SciPy for Python 
2.4 without problems ... perhaps I was just lucky ;-) 

+++ build environment +++

Python 2.4.2 (#67, Sep 28 2005, 12:41:11) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on win32

ATLAS 3.7.11 compiled with Cygwin+GCC 3.4.4

>>> scipy.__version__
'0.3.3_303.4573'
>>> f2py2e.__version__.version
'2.46.243_2019'
>>> Numeric.__version__
'24.0b2'

c:\work\scipy>gcc -v
Reading specs from c:/mingw/bin/../lib/gcc/mingw32/3.4.4/specs
gcc version 3.4.4 (mingw special)

>>> scipy.test(level=10)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ran 1188 tests in 66.703s
