[SciPy-Dev] disabling Accelerate on OS X

Hi,

Given the issues we've been having with Accelerate on OS X 10.7 and 10.8,
we plan to disable support for it completely in scipy (and numpy, will
bring that up on numpy-discussion later) before the next release.

Background:
https://github.com/scipy/scipy/issues/2248
https://github.com/scipy/scipy/issues/2547

This will make compiling on OS X harder, but we can't leave functionality
giving incorrect results (and ~70 test errors) hang around forever, so we
have to do something. We'll do some testing and write up a guide for how to
build against other BLAS/LAPACK implementations. Homebrew already supports
OpenBLAS, so that's a good option for who doesn't want to go through
compiling their own libraries.

Ralf
