I've done something similar:

    lapack_libs = ['lapack', 'cblas', 'f77blas', 'atlas']
    lapack_dirs = ['/usr/local/atlas/Linux_P4SSE2_full/lib']

Mmm, I can see that you have added 'f2c'. However, I don't have it
installed. Could that be the cause that tests would not pass in my case?

Great, it's good to know that.

Thank you very much for your feedback,
