#1241: __fitpack.h pointer incompatibility.

Comment(by cburns1):

 I've come across this problem with Mac OSX 10.6.7 on a PowerMac running in
 64-bit mode, Xcode version 3.2.6, and using gfortran.  The npy_intp passed
 to the FITPACK routines are 64-bit and should be 32-bit instead.  The
 returned integer is invalid (in my case a ridiculously huge value) and
 when used to allocate memory for the returned array, causes either a
 MemoryError or just brings the system to its knees by trying to allocate
 too much.
