This was due to an oversight on my end. I used gentoo's package manager to
completely remove atlas/blas/lapack, and afterwards verified that every
instance of /usr/lib/libatlas.* had been removed. I did not check that
libblas.* and liblapack.* had been removed, but I should have. Unfortunately,
a few broken soft links remained, which scipy found and tried to build
against. After removing those links, I was able to build scipy_core. How
embarrassing. I'm sorry for the noise.
