The files /usr/lib/liblapack.a and /usr/lib/liblapack.so are probably
32-bit instead of 64-bit. You can (probably) check this using the

  $ file /usr/lib/liblapack.so

Locate the 64-bit versions of liblapack and libblas and make sure that
you have the correct directory in your site.cfg file. The numpy source
tree contains a commented site.cfg.example file for you to start with.
