Could you please run scipy.test(10,10) to get a better idea where the 
bus error is occurring?

It would really help if I could log in to a Solaris machine somewhere.

Also run

print scipy.__core_version__

before you do that to verify the version you are running.

We still have to figure out why the isnan function is being picked up by 
configure but not by the compilation stage.
