Yes, that's pretty much the situation. I'm mostly looking for someone
who has satisfactory performance with their Core i7 so I can get some
comparison information and figure out if I need to disable
hyperthreading or compile atlas with different flags or what.

Are the Ubuntu 10.10 atlas packages actually different from the Ubuntu
10.04 atlas packages?

Depending on how I install I can get different error messages.
If I install the atlas packages in Ubuntu 10.04 I get slow performance
relative to other Core i7 or even Core 2 Quad machines with lower
clock rates that are available to me at work.
If I compile my own atlas and try to build numpy with site.cfg I get
one set of error messages that I've sent to the list before.
If I compile my own atlas and try to build numpy with environment
variables specifying the location of ATLAS, the environment variables
get ignored and it is built without atlas.
If I compile my own atlas and put symlinks to it in the default search
places, I get numpy libraries that ldd shows as linking to atlas but
still get slow peformance.
