You can't do it with the NumPy RPMs, which use the C versions.
So you must get the NumPy source code distribution and compile it
yourself. Before compiling it, edit the file "Setup" such that
the line starting with "lapack_lite" reads

lapack_lite -I./Include Src/lapack_litemodule.c -llapack -lblas -lg2c -lm

The compile and install according to the instructions.
