Okay, I guess I thought that since python.org now provides a 64-bit version alongside the 32-bit one, this was the way to go when it failed without the flags...

Many thanks, I would not have been able to find that out myself... For the record, changing line 257 of that file from:
for arch in ["ppc", "i686", "x86_64", "ppc64"]:
for arch in ["i686", "x86_64"]:
did the job for me, together with the standard "python setup.py install". All tests pass:
Ran 4405 tests in 54.433s
OK (KNOWNFAIL=19, SKIP=39)
<nose.result.TextTestResult run=4405 errors=0 failures=0>
If anybody is interested: I could not get it to work using numscons. On the MacBook Pro, the "Exception: Could not find F77 BLAS, needed for integrate package:" error showed up again. On the Mac Pro, it compiled, but the architecture error creeped back up.
