You first "uncompress" the .a into a temporary directory, with ar x on
Linux. Then, you group the .o together with gfortran -shared
$LIST_OF_OBJECT + a few options. You can also look at how Atlas does it
in its makefile.
As Matthieu mentioned, if the .o are not compiled with -fPIC, you are
screwed on 64 bits architectures (unless you statically link numpy in
your python interpreter, but I doubt you want to go that road). It would
be somewhat surprising if your vendor did not shared libraries
