[SciPy-user] Install can't find atlas

I have atlas installed in /usr/lib:

/usr/lib/libatlas.a
/usr/lib/libtstatlas.a

But I get the following error when trying to compile the snapshot tarball:

# python setup.py install
atlas_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 124, in ?
    install_package()
  File "setup.py", line 91, in install_package
    config.extend([get_package_config(x,parent_package)for x in 
standard_packages])
  File "setup.py", line 43, in get_package_config
    config = mod.configuration(parent)
  File "linalg/setup_linalg.py", line 29, in configuration
    raise AtlasNotFoundError,AtlasNotFoundError.__doc__
scipy_distutils.system_info.AtlasNotFoundError:
    Atlas (http://math-atlas.sourceforge.net/) libraries not found.
    Either install them in /usr/local/lib/atlas or /usr/lib/atlas
    and retry setup.py. One can use also ATLAS environment variable
    to indicate the location of Atlas libraries.

Any help appreciated.
