[SciPy-user] Floating point exception in scipy

Compiled on an Intel Mac os X using gcc 4.0.1 (the only one available  
on intel macs) and gfortran (from hpc.sf.net).  Python is MacPython  
Universal build 2.4.3.

Numpy compiles without a hitch, and tests with no errors.

SciPy also compiles without errors, but I get a floating point  
exception when trying to test scipy.  This includes doing scipy.test 
(10,10).  Below are the details of some attempts.  I'm really not  
sure where to begin, as it compiles fine.  Jordan Mantha has claimed  
success basically following the PPC build instructions with this  
compiler configuration, but I have not had any luck.  I have also  
tried to exclude modules that need umfpack, but that also failed in a  
similar way.

Any ideas?
