Detecting vecLib BLAS libraries is not implemented in system_info.py yet.
Could you send me the information how one can detect vecLib OSX
and I'll add its support to system_info.py? E.g. which files it should 
look for, or which programs to run and what should be the expected output, 
the values of os.name and sys.platform, etc.
