I got numpy and scipy to install and they both passed all the tests.
This is how I did it.

I followed the instructions on scipy.org for installing on Mac OS X.
I used the fortran compiler from att.com site.  I set my PYTHONPATH

export PYTHONPATH="/Library/Python/2.5/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH"

Everything compiled without any problems.  Thanks for everyone's
suggestions.  I hope my results will help others.
