Sorry for not being precise: Both python and numpy have been build with

OPT=-DNDEBUG -g -O0 -fwrapv -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes

i.e. "-O0" instead of "-O3". I am using ATLAS and netlib.org Lapack, so 
I will rebuild everything and run the BLAS as well as Lapack testers to 
make 100% sure everything is on working correctly. Since the above 
python is part of a Sage build and passes 99% of Sage's doctests I am 
pretty sure that ATLAS and Lapack do work, but one never knows. Since I 
am sleepy I will do all that tomorrow.

Ok. Which compiler did you use?
