Not sure what the problem is in your case, but I had the same error a
while back.  For some reason, ATLAS thought it should be compiled as
64 bit but numpy as 32 bit. .  It went away after I passed the -b 32
flag to configure in ATLAS (I think).  Thus that's one thing to check.
Also, make sure you're using ATLAS 3.8.x, as I had problems with the
3.9 series (don't know if that would be an issue still).
