Updated and fixed package sits in our svn. Please review, if it's ok,
I'll upload tomorrow.

Pontential problems:


    FAILED (failures=2)
    Out[2]: <unittest._TextTestResult run=1728 errors=0 failures=2>


  In [2]: scipy.test()
  FAILED (failures=5)
  Out[2]: <unittest._TextTestResult run=1728 errors=0 failures=5>

I think those errors are not serious, as the scipy package have some
tests failing anyway and its more important to get the gfortran based
first. We can then report all the bugs upstream. What do you think?
