The command "python setup.py build" exits with the following error

error: Command "gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3
-Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fPIC
-Ibuild/temp.linux-i686-2.3/config_pygist -ILib/xplt/src/gist

-I/usr/local/include/python2.3 -c Lib/xplt/src/play/x11/colors.c -o
failed with exit status 1

I'm running Fedora Core 2 on a Dell Latitude C640 laptop. I have
Python 2.3.4, Numeric version 23.1, numarray version 1.1, f2py2e version
2.43.239_1844 and scipy_distutils version 0.3.2.

I've put some additional information on
http://www.tele.ntnu.no/users/birkenes/scipy/ including:
build.out: stdout of "python setup.py build"
build.err: stderr of "python setup.py build"
diagnose.out: stdout of "python -c 'from f2py2e.diagnose import
atlas_version.out: stdout of "python -c 'import atlas_version'"
system_info.out: stdout of "python

Do you have any suggestions for what I can do to install SciPy?
Thanking you in advance!
