Can you check whether r7387 fixes the problem ?

Concerning your first problem, I don't think the information given on
the link are really good. They are overly complicated, and using sudo
and modifying apple-installed numpy is a bad idea. Also, sudo does not
simply propagate environment variables.

If all you do is using the system python (the one from apple), then
you only need to set up FFLAGS because gfortran does not target x86_64
by default.
