The problem here is that NumPy's lapack_lite is compiled to C with f2c,
and there is a handwritten C extension module (lapack_litemodule.c) to
use it. Unlike SciPy, it does not use f2py to call Fortran LAPACK directly.
I am not sure why NumPy uses f2c'd routines instead of a dependency on
BLAS and LAPACK like SciPy.
And by Murphy's law, function pointers to the f2c'd LAPACK routines are
not exported from lapack_lite.pyd. So it does not even help to load it
with ctypes as an ordinary DLL.
