Robert, I had this problem with the SciPy superpack,
too. I had to install the fortran compiler using the
terminal command on the tarball:
sudo tar -xvf g77v3.4-bin.tar -C /
followed by my password.
I also found that since I used a non-Apple Python I
had to install iPython from the terminal, too.
I would like to emphasize that as a user I really like
the idea of these superpacks. I love the stuff coming
out in python now and I am using it more and more, but
it is maddening to keep the dependencies straight --
which versions of the packages work together. I fear
upgrading any package including python since it can
start a long spiral of seaching and testing to get
everything working together again. Superpacks can go
a long way in providing a useful scientific package
all in one. Just some tweaking and they're there. I
hope they are maintained for the sake of us users.
Thanks to all who do that.
