Still can't install scipy due to missing fortran compiler after brew install gcc on Mac OS X

I have read and followed this answer to install scipy/numpy/theano. However, it still failed on the same error of missing Fortran compiler after brew install gcc. While HomeBrew installed the gcc-4.8, it didn't install any gfortran or g95 commands. I figure gfortran may be just a synonymy of gcc, then I create a symlink

$ cd /usr/local/bin
$ ln -s gcc-4.8 gfortran
$ pip install scipy

Then it detects the gfortran command but still complaining no Fortran compiler

customize Gnu95FCompiler
Found executable /usr/local/bin/gfortran

What else should I do?

Fixed by upgrading pip, even though I just installed my pip/virtualenv the first time anew on the same day.

It's depends on gcc version. Check your gcc version:

Depends: gcc-4.8-base (= 4.8.2-19ubuntu1) but 4.8.4-2ubuntu1~14.04 is to be installed

Update your gcc version: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2013/08/install-gcc-4-8-via-ppa-in-ubuntu-12-04-13-04/
