FYI, scipy_distutils has rather general lapack/blas/atlas detection code
facilities. It first looks for atlas/lapack libraries, then for
blas/lapack libraries, and finally for blas/lapack Fortran sources that
scipy_distutils would compile behind the scenes.
See scipy_distutils/system_info.py and 
scipy/Lib/lib/lapack/setup_lapack.py for more information.
