oh, the alias was done to force any calls to gfortran to actually call g77.

i've tried this command:

 ../configure -Fa alg -fPIC

and I modified make.inc with the following options:

OPTS     = -O2 -fPIC
NOOPT    = -O0 -fPIC

I'm still getting these relocation errors during scipy's build.

i guess the follow on question is this, how do i tell ./setup.py to
select g77 OR gfortran to execute with?
