[SciPy-user] Scipy, FC4 and g77

I'm increasingly frustrated by the difficulties in building Scipy on  
FC4. I've gotten a lot of very useful help from members of this list,  
but I still do not have a working version of the entire program. This  
has kept me from moving my software (PyQuante, a python quantum  
chemistry suite) from Numpy to Scipy, despite all of the nice goodies  
that Scipy offers.

Is is possible to build g77 on top of gcc4? gfortran doesn't compile  
a lot of the projects here at Sandia that used to work with g77, and  
I'm concerned about waiting for gfortran to get up to speed. If the  
g77 code just needs an official maintainer/bug fixer, I'm sure I can  
find someone to do this. However, if there is a more substantial  
reason why the code can't be built, I'd be interested in hearing it.

Apologies for asking this question here, rather than on a GCC list.  
This is a relatively friendly forum, and since I figure people here  
are struggling with the same issues, I hope that I'd get a more  
useful answer here than on some GCC list.
