Hi there,

    I tried to compile numpy/scipy with recent LAPACK and BLAS versions 
(LAPACK 3.1.1, BLAS from the netlib package, not from LAPACK, using 
gfortran as a compiler everywhere), and I got several errors when 
testing scipy:

    ======================================================================

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The different dtype may suggest an error while compiling the 
BLAS/LAPACK, but I tested the libraries with official tester without any 
error.

cheers,

David
