Yes, so the problem is your gcc version. Maybe we could disable adding 
-msse2 altogether for gcc < 3.3, instead of enabling it for gcc > 3.2.2 
(look at numpy/distutils/fcompiler/gnu.py, and look for -msse2; if Pearu 
or David are reading this, maybe they know a better solution ?).

Note that FC5 is old. You should consider upgrading (FC 5 is not 
maintained anymore) if you can,
