I just tried this and it took so long on my machine (Athlon64, fc5_x86_64),
that I ctrl-c'd out of it. Running ldd on lapack_lite.so shows
libpthread.so.0 => /lib64/libpthread.so.0 (0x00002aaaaace2000)
libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00002aaaaadfa000)
So apparently the Atlas library present in /usr/lib64/atlas was not linked
in. I built numpy from the svn repository two days ago. I expect JJ's
version is linked with atlas 'cause mine sure didn't run in 11 seconds.
