See setup.py file line #28:
build_flib.all_compilers = [build_flib.gnu_fortran_compiler]

You must comment it out to use your native Fortran compiler.
See also scipy_distutils/command/build_flib.py where you find the
definition of a Sun Fortran compiler. Feel free to fix things there and
send patches.
