[Numpy-discussion] Build ERROR ConfigParser.MissingSectionHeaderError: File contains no section headers

Dear Numpy/SciPy users,

I have a build error with Numpy:

$  /usr/local/bin/python2.7 setup.py build
....
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/ConfigParser.py", line 504, in _read
    raise MissingSectionHeaderError(fpname, lineno, line)
ConfigParser.MissingSectionHeaderError: File contains no section headers.
file: /projects/tmp/numpy-1.5.1/site.cfg, line: 60
'library_dirs = /usr/local/lib\n'

The relevant lines in my site.cfg file:

library_dirs = /usr/local/lib
include_dirs = /usr/local/include
#[blas_opt]
libraries = f77blas, cblas, atlas
#[lapack_opt]
libraries = lapack, f77blas, cblas, atlas


I have installed BLAS+LAPACK+ATLAS libraries under /usr/local/lib/atlas

I also installed UMFPACK+AMD+UFConfig+CHOLMOD

I would appreciate any comments. I'm stuck here :(

Best regards,
Jose M. Borreguero
