I maintain scipy for MacPorts and a user has reported a build problem
with PowerPC Mac OS X 10.4 and scipy-0.7.0 (against numpy-1.3.0). The
build is failing with the following error:

>From what I can gather this is due to the flags "-arch ppc" being
specified on the command line to the compiler. On my Intel 10.5
system, no architecture specific flags are passed to the compiler.
Does anyone why these options are being passed? Or how to try and
solve this?

This seems to be a similar problem to
