Well, I am happy to report that I can do one better. With gcc4/gfortran combo 
from SVN yesterday, along with the usual Redhat/Fedora patches (see 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=173771 for the complete 
discussion regarding SciPy), I can now compile ATLAS and SciPy with no 
problems and all tests pass with the following patch:

--- Lib/lib/blas/fblaswrap.f.src	(revision 1452)

For Fedora Core 4 users who would like to play with this, please use 
gcc-4.0.2-7 currently available in FC4 updates-testing repository. I am using 
SciPy core 1526 and scipy 1452.

Question: Scipy runs only 1370 tests on my machine. Is that the right number 
or am I missing some?

Another question for Arnd: Why do you need g2c when you build with gfortran?
