Hi Clarence,

Check out this thread: http://www.scipy.net/pipermail/scipy-user/2002- 
May/000434.html

In summary: BLAS provides srotmg but LAPACK doesn't. So you need to  
download and build BLAS from Netlib. There are instructions for this  
at http://new.scipy.org/Wiki/Installing_SciPy/BuildingGeneral.
