problem with lapack_lite / BLAS

Dear list,

 I'm trying to compile ATLAS 3.6.0 and LAPACK 3.0 (+ update) and use them with 
the latest numpy (checked out today). Installation seems to be fine, all the 
libraries are detected. When I import numpy, however, I get this:

Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Sep 27 2006, 17:40:29) 
[GCC 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-13)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import numpy
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
line 40, in <module>
    import linalg
line 4, in <module>
    from linalg import *
line 25, in <module>
    from numpy.linalg import lapack_lite
ImportError: /home/langner/apps/python/lib/python2.5/site-packages/numpy/linalg/ 
undefined symbol: xerbla_

Does anyone know where this comes from?
