I can't reproduce this problem either. I just yesterday built scipy  
from SVN on two different OS X 10.4.10 boxes, one using the fortran  
compiler from hpc.sourceforge.net (not the latest 2007 release, but  
the december 2006 one), and the other using the compiler from  
r.research.att.com/tools. Everything else was similar, and everything  
worked fine with regard to ticket 401.

On the other hand, when I tried to compile scipy using the latest  
(2007-05) gfortran from hpc.sourceforge.net, I got bizarre link  
errors about MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET being set incorrectly. (See  
previous email here http://projects.scipy.org/pipermail/scipy-user/ 
2007-June/012542.html ). Interestingly, with the earlier version of  
gfortran from hpc.sourceforge.net, and with the r.research.att.com/ 
tools version, this problem  does not arise.

Anyhow, my point is that there are still odd linker errors (as in  
ticket 401) lurking that may or may not have anything to do with  
scipy per se, but might have to do with odd and perhaps buggy builds  
of gfortran. Feh -- I wish Apple would just start including a fortran  
compiler with the rest of their dev tools. The situation otherwise is  
not good.
