No, no fortran code,  If anything it is scipy.distutils choking.  SciPy 
distutils supports Fortran compilers but should not need them for scipy 
core.  So, I'm not sure what the problem is.  Show us the build log.

What is the error?

By the way, where do we stand on the Solairs build.  I was distracted 
trying to resolve some issues on a 64-bit system.
