[SciPy-User] building on Ubuntu Linux from github source : BLAS and LAPACK not getting picked up from environment variable

Hi
I am on 64 bit Ubuntu , python  2.6.5 , GCC 4.4.3. I want to compile
my own scipy since the ubuntu package on lucid installs a scipy which
does not have the scipy.optimize.curve_fit

I followed the build instructions at the url below to install from the
git source .

http://www.scipy.org/Installing_SciPy/BuildingGeneral

I could install numpy from the git source . Then I installed lapack
and blas libraries in my home directory following the instructions at
BuildingGeneral.
I set the environment variables BLAS and LAPACK in my ~/.bashrc and
sourced them and then tried the setup.py for scipy

sudo python setup.py install


I get the following errors implying that BLAS was not getting picked
up.  I even copied the libblas.a and liblapack.a files to /usr/lib,
linked it to liblapack.so ...but none of these helped find lapack or
blas


"numpy.distutils.system_info.BlasNotFoundError:
    Blas (http://www.netlib.org/blas/) libraries not found.
    Directories to search for the libraries can be specified in the
    numpy/distutils/site.cfg file (section [blas]) or by setting
    the BLAS environment variable."

I am wondering if  the build instructions are different for the github
tree. The detailed error is given below.
Thanks for your help
