I think I may have added the _fitpack.so dependency for a bug fix, IIRC the
original only used dfitpack.so. I'm not really happy with fitpack, it is a
bit musty and not that clean, but it would be a significant amount of work
to fix it up or replace it. It might be possible to use just a small subset
of the functions and build higher functionality using cython or some such.
