Compiling on Windows, continued.
I short-circuited the functions in specfun.f that were causing problems.
Those functions are RMN2L and ASWFB, the radial and angular prolate and
oblate spherical functions of the first kind.
Hopefully, I've not created a land mine.  Now specfun.f compiles to

But I have a new problem, one that looks odd to my eye.  See below.  Is
there a command called "g" ?

BTW, if anyone can tell me that they've built scipy on Windows, and how they
did it, please contact me.
How did the Enthought people do it?
