[SciPy-dev] Mac leopard and scipy sparse status

I have been porting my numpy/scipy apps to my new imac for the last week or
so , and have been getting seg faults in the sparse matrix package for the
available binary build.  I  rebuilt lapack, atlas, umfpack and numpy from
sources without problems, but the scipy build crashes while wrapping
umfpack.  I recall seeing some traffic about modifications to the sparse
matrix package, and am wondering if I should get the svn version of this
package before I starting working on the problem.  It is probably just a
change in the swig include file, but  I use this package a lot and would
like to start with  a more recent version if there have been significant


p.s. I would be happy to package up the release and contribute it if anyone
is interested.  Leopard ships gcc 4.0.2, which if I recall correctly,
performed pretty badly on the atlas benchmarks.  I installed 4.2.2 and am
using that for the build, so it might be bit faster.
