The obvious question is what is umath_test.so :) We don't generate
this file AFAIK, and I certainly cannot see it mentioned anywhere in
numpy source code (and neither in my mac os X or linux installation).

FreeBSD would also require some minor modifications to
numpy.distutils, I believe. I have just noticed a bug which may be
related in numpy.distutils on a fresh ubuntu install, where numpy uses
the C compiler to link atlas when no fortran compiler is available (it
should fail instead, since we use the fortran interface in that case,
and that cannot work without some fortran support, obviously).
