This is comping from numpy:
-bash-3.00$ /usr/sfw/bin/ggrep -r f77compat *
You might want to throw it out there. Depending on which symbols are
missing at link or module import time you might need to add some libs
there. I guess by the time I have build Python, numpy and scipy on that
box using the Sun compiler you will have fixed the problem :) If you
have problems I can poke around in case it is not fixed in numpy 1.1.x.

Sun Studio 12 does not ship a liblf77compat.[so|a]. I would guess this
is a bug in numpy and it should probably be fixed there.
