The application of the patches (with your suggested modifications along with a 
big notice saying that gfortran is not supported) will not change anything 
for the people who do not use gfortran. However, it would make life easier 
for those who do and might get us more testers who can make scipy usable with 
gfortran. At some point, gfortran will need to be supported, since g77 is 
unmaintained now.

As noted, the bug fixes for linalg will need to be made at some point too.

Going first - but only because I need Python 2.4.
