[Numpy-discussion] 64-bit build woes

Hi all,

I received this message today from a collaborator.  I don't have
direct access to this box, but he posted fairly detailed logs.  Has
anyone seen a similar issue with current code?  If not, I'll try to
track down further with him what the problem may actually be.

Thanks for any help,


============ Original message:

We are having trouble with scipy (not)compiling on the 64-bit machine,
and it seems to be related to the intp type. I put the log file and
connected files at
The relevant parts are at the end of scipy.log:

I don't see "intp" in fortranobject.c, so it must be included from
