[Numpy-discussion] further questions: numpy on Solaris x86 with sun CC and libsunperf

I have found a way to build numpy on solaris x86 with
libsunperf. Basically, using the static library, and removing the
compiler flag for libf77compat (I think it's deprecated and has been
removed) and furthermore symlinking liblapack.a and libblas.a to the actual
libsunperf.a seems to result in a successful build.

However, running numpy.test() results in the following error:

....................................................................................F........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Can anyone offer an opinion as to the severity of this failure?

Thanks,
