Hello numpy users,

I am trying to build numpy 1.6.1 and am having problems. It prints the following error message:

gcc -pthread -shared build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/numpy/core/blasdot/_dotblas.o -L/usr/lib64/atlas -Lbuild/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4 -lptf77blas -lptcblas -latlas -o build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.4/numpy/core/_dotblas.so

error: Command "gcc -pthread -shared build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4/numpy/core/blasdot/_dotblas.o -L/usr/lib64/atlas -Lbuild/temp.linux-x86_64-2.4 -lptf77blas -lptcblas -latlas -o build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.4/numpy/core/_dotblas.so" failed with exit status 1

I do not know anything about the setup.py script, so do not know how to add the -fPIC switch. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
