Hey Guys,

I did not have any success on a Sun Studio 12 (8.3) scipy build with
f77compat removed from the sun.py in the numpy tree. The numpy build went
fine (I cleaned the tree, downloaded the source, built via 'python setup.py

I didn't want to flood this list with compile error messages, so please let
me know if someone would like me to send out the build failure output for

I do not need (at the moment) a 64-bit build. Which is why my environment
variables for BLAS and LAPACK point to 32 bit libs:

library and lib/amd64 the 64 bit version.

Again, I know about as much of python as my 2 year old nephew. I'm
attempting this install at the request of a researcher who needs it.
