So just removing the two lines from numpy seems to fix the problem in
Debian. So far all tests seem to run both on i386 and amd64, both with
and without atlas packages installed. And it is indeed faster with the
altas packages instaled, yet it doesn't need them to build. I think
that's what we want, no?
