As far as I can tell the Superpack is 32bit only installation. Since you have installed 
FFTW as a 64bit library, I assume that python is also a 64bit version and then you 
are going to have to install numpy/scipy from scratch (something that is not a 
very easy thing to get right on the mac in 64bit).
