[Numpy-discussion] Building Numpy: could not read symbols Bad value error

Bright minds,

I'm trying to build Numpy v1.4.1 from source on CentOS 5.2 x64 and
running into errors. It seems to be linking error. Regrettably, I
don't posses the necessary skill to decipher the error. So your help
will be invaluable.

I configured (and then successfully built) ATLAS with the following
configure line:
../configure --with-netlib-lapack-tarfile=/usr/local/src/Python/numpy/lapack.tgz
-D c -DPentiumCPS=2666 --prefix=/usr/local/atlas-3.9.25 -b 64 -Fa alg
'-fPIC'


Now, building the Numpy (using gfortran) fails with:
/usr/bin/gfortran -Wall -Wall -shared
build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.6/numpy/linalg/lapack_litemodule.o
build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.6/numpy/linalg/python_xerbla.o
