[SciPy-dev] Install error on RHEL5

I just finished an install of numpy/scipy/matplotlib on a 64-bit RHEL5 
system, and am now trying to replicate that on a 32-bit system.  So far, 
there are two differences:

1) fftw3 is not available through yum on the 32-bit system, so I built 
it from source.
2) Attempting to build scipy results in the error below.

Attached is a PDF with the notes (most of which came from Phil Austin) I 
compiled after installing on the 64-bit system.

I'm currently recompiling ATLAS (which takes an amazingly long time), 
and then will try to rebuild LAPACK, BLAS, etc.  Before I get there, 
does anyone have any idea what the root of the below error might be?

 usr/local/bin/python setup.py build
