Yes.  It occurred to me to try the Intel Fortran compiler, which I had 
installed a copy of long ago and forgotten about.  With the appropriate 
PATH changes to find the ifort command, the above lists all three of 
g77, Absoft, and Intel being available on my system.  But scipy always 
builds with g77.  Is there an easy way I can get a trace of the list of 
steps Scipy uses to determine which Fortran compiler to use?  I'd think 
that if I request a compiler which isn't available for some reason it 
would throw an exception rather than using g77 anyway.
