[SciPy-dev] [PATCH] Compilation with gcc4/gfortran

  Please find attached a patch (against scipy CVS) to compile with gcc 4.0. 
The changes are very simple and should not hurt any other set up:
  1. Add "gfortran" as an option for Fortran compilation.
  2. Add libgfortran as a replacement for libg2c (needs some tweaking).
  3. Modify Lib/linalg/iterative/*.f.src to avoid jumping into a block.
  4. Remove sse2 optimizations (see mailing lists for more information).
I have tested this on Linux x86 with gcc CVS stable branch (4_0_branch) which 
is scheduled to be released as gcc 4.0.2. gcc 4.0.1 does not work since 
support for Hollerith constants (this obsolete construct is heavily used in 
scipy) was added only last week. Could someone with sufficient karma commit 
  Would there be any object to contributing C++ code into scipy? As far as I 
can see, scipy does not use any C++ constructs. Is this intentional?
