Comment (by otizonaizit):

 Thank you for your comments! [[BR]]

 - The debian python-numpy package in etch (numpy 1.0.1) worked because it
 was dependent on atlas... sorry, I only got the chance today of checking
 with an old debian installation!

 - No, numpy as a whole is not really slow, what I meant is, of course,
 that matrix multiplication is slow. "unusable" was a little too much :-)).
 Because my main use for numpy *is* matrix multiplication, I tend to
 overstate its importance :-))

 I see that the only solution is to depend on atlas, which for lenny debian
 users means no dotblas until atlas has achieved the transition to gfortran
 ( http://buildd.debian.org/~jeroen/status/package.php?p=atlas ) .

 thank you very much!
