Actually, my suggestion is to use gcc 4.0. This should be your "Plan A" since 
gcc 3.3 *cannot* be used to build extensions for the Universal build of Python. 
Don't bother futzing with the Makefile.

A side effect of this is that you must use gfortran instead of g77 since g77 was 
never upgraded to work with gcc 4.0. Of course, your FORTRAN compiler does not 
matter when building numpy, just scipy.

Yes, if you like. I use the one from MacPorts, but whatever works for you.
