On a 64-bit platform you'll need F2PY version 2.43.239_1831, at least.
Also upgrading Numeric would be recommended (make sure that new
Numeric header files are copied to install directory as well).

Btw, all scipy tests pass ok on a dual Opteron box with 64-bit gentoo 
system. I am using f2py from cvs, scipy from cvs, Numeric 23.5, ATLAS 
3.7.8, Python 2.3.4, gcc 3.4.3 in this box.
