Good morning,

I've just done a fresh checkout from SVN and attempted to build numpy on 
a Solaris 10 system.  The build actually completes normally.  However, 
when attempting to import numpy I get the following error:

Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Jan 21 2008, 11:03:00) [C] on sunos5
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import numpy
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "/data/basil5/site-packages/lib/python/numpy/__init__.py", line 
51, in <module>
     import linalg
"/data/basil5/site-packages/lib/python/numpy/linalg/__init__.py", line 
4, in <module>
     from linalg import *
   File "/data/basil5/site-packages/lib/python/numpy/linalg/linalg.py", 
line 28, in <module>
     from numpy.linalg import lapack_lite
ImportError: ld.so.1: python: fatal: relocation error: file 
symbol s_cat: referenced symbol not found

I haven't had these issues with lapack in the past.  Has anyone made 
changes to linalg dependencies lately that I must have missed?

Thank you for your time and help,
