A long time ago I stumbled upon this installation howto for macs ...  
it's quite handy.

python.html

The person there recommends this method to grab a fortran compiler  
for PPC macs:

curl -O http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/hpc/g77v3.4- 
bin.tar.gz
sudo tar -C / -xzf g77v3.4-bin.tar.gz

HTH,
-steve
