I think I have this exact situation and don't understand the final
answer.  Do I need to be concerned with the warning that my clapack
and cblas modules are empty?

ryan@ubuntu:~$ ldd /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy/linalg/lapack_lite.so
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xffffe000)
        liblapack.so.3 => /usr/lib/atlas/sse2/liblapack.so.3 (0xb7945000)
        libblas.so.3 => /usr/lib/atlas/sse2/libblas.so.3 (0xb73a8000)
        libg2c.so.0 => /usr/lib/libg2c.so.0 (0xb7381000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libm.so.6 (0xb735f000)
        libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xb7355000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0xb7226000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x80000000)

ryan@ubuntu:~$ locate *clapack.so
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/scipy/lib/lapack/clapack.so
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/scipy/linalg/clapack.so

ryan@ubuntu:/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/scipy/lib/lapack$ ls -al

What does it all mean?

Thanks,
