Indeed, it was Python2.2 that caused these troubles (may be new
distutils in 2.2, I didn't track down the exact cause). I fixed it by
adding blas to the list of libraries for quadpack (that uses linpack_lite
and that uses blas).
The latest scipy in CVS should now build with Python 2.2.
On the other hand, I find the issue mentioned in the setup_integrate.py
# Note that all extension modules will be linked against all c and
# fortran libraries. But it is a good idea to at least comment
# the dependencies in the section for each subpackage.
a bug in scipy_distutils. I would prefer that when defining an Extension,
then it should _explicitly_ define also all libraries that this extension
module depends on (this will avoid these strange dependency
Basically, scipy_distutils.setup should not use
'fortran_libraries' keyword as an extension of the 'libraries' keyword.
In fact, both these keywords should not be used when a package defines
more than one extension module with different set of libraries.
If nobody will mind, I'll try to fix this in scipy_distutils.
What do you think?
 'Tervitus' is estonian word for 'Greeting'
