I think Bob Ippolito may be working on a MacPython-2.3 Package Manager 
release which uses Apple's vecLib, so let's keep our fingers crossed... 
  (I suppose one might accelerate this process by hiring him.  He's 
definitely a whiz at getting stuff to work on OS X.)

In the meantime, I exist quite happily by grabbing ATLAS from fink, but 
using the "official" MacPython-2.3 from Jack Jansen and compiling scipy 
(and other python modules not available through Package Manager) from 
CVS sources.  I posted some stuff to this list about a few tweaks to 
scipy's build system -- I think site.cfg or something.

Other details:

g77 3.1 doesn't like the MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.2.

shuksan ~$ g77 -v

Good luck!
