[SciPy-Dev] Installing scipy on OS 10.6.2

I downloaded scipy from svn.  Then I did the command:

$ LDFLAGS="-lgfortran -arch x86_64" FFLAGS="-arch x86_64" sudo python setupscons.py install

Trying this dies with:

scons: done building targets.

  File "/Users/fuossadmin/Desktop/Downloads/scipy/build/scons/scipy/fftpack/SConscript", line 11:

If you think it is a problem in numscons, you can also try executing the scons
command with --log-level option for more detailed output of what numscons is
doing, for example --log-level=0; the lowest the level is, the more detailed
the output it.

Any clues?

I have been unsuccessful at installing scipy on OS 10.6. When I try 
to build from the distribution, I get a huge number of library 
architecture errors. I've tried to build both against the python 
that comes with the system (2.6.1) and against the MacPort python 
(2.6.5) (see test summary at end of message). 

When I try to install via MacPort, it appears to install but much 
functionality is missing (e.g. curve_fit) that I assume is because 
the BLAS and LAPACK libraries aren't being linked to correctly. 

I'm using OS 10.6.2 on an Intel iMac. 

The latest Xcode is installed (3.2.1) with: 
i686-apple-darwin10-gcc-4.2.1 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646) (dot 1) 

gfortran from research.att.acom: 
GNU Fortran (GCC) 4.2.3 

I would appreciate suggestions. 

How are you trying to build? The error suggests you are building for the wrong achitecture (32 vs 64-bit). 

I have been able to build against the Apple-provided python but not the python.org version so far. The difference is that the former is 64-bit while the latter is 32-bit. For Apple Python, install numscons ( http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/wiki/NumScons ) and gfortran (from http://r.research.att.com/tools/ ) and use: 
$ LDFLAGS="-lgfortran -arch x86_64" FFLAGS="-arch x86_64" python setupscons.py scons
