Oops. I unset FFLAGS/F90FLAGS/F77FLAGS but forgot about LDFLAGS. Sorry  
about that.

The build works fine once "ppc64" appears in that list. There are some  
stupid minor test failures where the results are different but the  
difference bounds for assert_array_almost_equal are probably too  
small, but cephes is building correctly now.

I put it in a ticket and attached a patch at http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/ticket/1399 
  just so it's kept track of.

Also, I noticed a duplicate of my last ppc64-related bug showed up in http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/ticket/1272 
  but I don't have privileges necessary to mark it as a duplicate.

Thanks a lot,


P.S. Is there a difference between i386 and i686 as far as the Apple  
gcc is concerned? I usually see it named 'i386' but in the source for  
numpy/distutils/fcompiler/gnu.py it's listed as i686.
