I do not get it on Fedora but you using an old gcc (GCC 4.1.2 20080704). 
I presume that blas etc were compiled with the same version as Python2.7 
- if not then you should do so.

What values do you get for the norm(a) in the test from scipy and numpy?
If you get '1000.0' then perhaps something is not being called correctly 
as line 13 of scipy/linalg/misc.py is failing on your system:
'ord' should be None because of the call
' a.ndim == 1' should be 'True'
'a.dtype.char' should be 'f'
