Just to clarify, you mean doing a "ldd lapack_lite.so" to check which
blas and lapack is used at runtime. Right?

I also removed site.cfg when building. With no atlas, and with both
libatlas-base and libatlas-sse, the complex linear algebra errors went
away and I got only 1 error:

FAIL: Test bug in reduceat with structured arrays copied for speed.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/nose/case.py", line 183, in runTest

  File "/var/opt/py/lib/python2.5/site-packages/numpy/testing/utils.py",

    raise AssertionError(msg)
Arrays are not almost equal

(mismatch 100.0%)
 x: array([ -5.17543592e+11,  -5.17543592e+11,  -5.17543592e+11,
        -5.17543592e+11], dtype=float32)
 y: array([  700.,   800.,  1000.,  7500.], dtype=float32)

So it appears that it's the sse2 variant that is causing the problem.
