Hi Robert,

caught a lucky break and found a box with Sun Studio 11: It ships a 
libf77compat.so.

To identify:

Hope this helps.

It seems that Phil is not poking around. I have some odd numpy 1.0.4cvs 
failure with gcc in 32 bit mode on Solaris 10 Intel when computing roots 
of polynomials. Since Sage will finally upgrade to numpy 1.1 soon I will 
try to see if I can reproduce the problem there and for fun I can also 
build numpy 1.1 + scipy in 64 bit mode with Sun Forte. So if there are 
any patches let me know and I can try them out. Otherwise I will likely 
do some crude patching to get the flags right and let you guys work out 
the fines details :)

Cheers,

Michael
