OK. I did an "emerge lapack" and got lapack installed, then re-build 
Numeric, and now it works. What's odd is that before I installed lapack 
all the libs were there, including liblapack. Anyway it works, so I'm happy.

One note, however:

The setup.py delivered with 23.3 seems to be set up to use a native 
lapack by default. Will it work on a system that doesn't have one?
