What compilers did you use? And do you know if EPD was built with the same

The error looks the same as the problem we still have with scipy.sparse
under 64-bit python 2.7 (http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/ticket/1523),
related to the Apple Accelerate Framework being broken. The problem doesn't
exist on OS X 10.6 though, so it could be Apple broke it for 10.7 or it
could be compiler related.
