These errors seem to indicate that while the build finished it did not 
result in useful code.

Could you post the output of the build log?  It may contain warnings 
that are relevant.

I don't understand why you are getting the errors you are getting.  They 
seem unusual.  Make sure you are running from outside the directory you 
built in (i.e. don't run in the numpy source directory).

This is a strange as it seems your math library has the wrong definition 
for modfl.   Can you verify what section of code this is balking on?

Thanks for the attempts,
