I found out how to change the default compiler with easy_install but now 
  I am told I cannot compile the code on Solaris with gcc:

Building modules...
         Building module "mvn"...
                 Constructing wrapper function "mvnun"...
                   value,inform = 
                 Constructing wrapper function "mvndst"...
                   error,value,inform = 
                 Constructing COMMON block support for "dkblck"...
         Wrote C/API module "mvn" to file 
         Fortran 77 wrappers are saved to 
error: Setup script exited with error: don't know how to compile C/C++ 
code on platform 'posix' with 'gcc' compiler

I created the following ~/.pydistutils.cfg

compiler = gcc

to change the default compiler.

Any help appreciated,
