"Need", no, you do not "need" them in the sense that NumPy does not require
them to work.  NumPy will work just fine without those libraries.  However,
if you "want" them, then that is where the choice of Fortran compiler comes
in.  Look at the INSTALL.txt file for more detailed instructions.

That entirely depends on your development setup on your Mac.  I will leave
that discussion up to others on the list to answer.
