No problems there.

I downloaded my copy a last week.

I took your advice and checked out a CVS copy and downloaded hpc's  
g77 again just now. It builds okay now!

When I ran scipy.test(), it reported "no test file found" for many of  
the modules, but as far as actual failures go, there was only one  
(out of 1174):

     FAIL: check_round (scipy.special.basic.test_basic.test_round)
     Traceback (most recent call last):
       File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/ 
python2.4/site-packages/scipy/special/tests/test_basic.py", line  
1789, in check_round
       File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/ 
python2.4/site-packages/scipy_test/testing.py", line 715, in  
         assert cond,\
     Arrays are not equal (mismatch 25.0%):
             Array 1: [10 10 10 11]
             Array 2: [10 10 11 11]

I take it that's normal on OS X?

At any rate, I'm happy it builds. Thanks!
