Just tried to compile SciPy on a RedHat Enterprise 5 system, following  
the instructions on http://pong.tamu.edu/tiki/tiki-view_blog_post.php?blogId=6&postId=97

and got the errors below:

error: Command "/usr/bin/g77 -g -Wall -g -Wall -shared build/ 
x86_64-2.5/scipy/lib/blas/fblasmodule.o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.5/

x86_64-2.5 -lfblas -lg2c -o build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.5/scipy/lib/blas/ 
fblas.so" failed with exit status 1

NOTE: I did not build numpy myself - I used easy_install for that.   
I'm trying to determine the path of least resistance for building a  
fully functional numpy/scipy suite, and since numpy seems to install  
just fine from PyPI, I went with that.

Any tips?
