I have Scipy working on FC4 but with some work.  To summarize the key 
points: I don't use the ATLAS libraries which are part of Fedora Extras, 
but build my own; they live in /usr/lib/atlas.  I use g77 to build Scipy 
on some of my systems, and Absoft Fortran on others.  For the g77 
systems, I do have one unsupported hack, which is to symbolically link 
libg2c.a and libg2c.so from the gcc 3.2.3 library directory to the gcc 
4.0.1 directory so that a link step which uses gcc4 can find them.
