The following recipe worked on RH9 and gentoo 1.4:
     1. Set environment variable USE_LAPACK:
                export USE_LAPACK=1
     2. Edit addon.py and make the following changes:
             1. Change the first item of lapack_libs from 'blas' to
                'atlas'
             2. Change lapack_dirs from [] to ['directory of
                libatlas.a', 'directory of libg2c.a']
             3. Proceed with the usual installation: python setup.py ...
I had some problem on the RH9 system that were solved by upgrading to a
recent ATLAS package.

 Enjoy ;)
  Nadav.
