#671: linalg ImportError on Solaris 10 systems
 Reporter:  chanley       |       Owner:  somebody          
     Type:  defect        |      Status:  new               
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  1.0.5             
Component:  numpy.linalg  |     Version:  none              
 Severity:  normal        |    Keywords:  linalg,ImportError
 When building numpy from svn on a Sun Ultra 10 running Solaris 10 the
 build completes without error.  However, when attempting to then import
 numpy I receive the following "ImportError" exception:

 Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Feb  8 2008, 15:02:09) [C] on sunos5
 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import numpy
 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "/data/basil5/site-pckages/lib/python/numpy/__init__.py", line 51,

   File "/data/basil5/site-pckages/lib/python/numpy/linalg/__init__.py",
 line 4, in <module>
   File "/data/basil5/site-pckages/lib/python/numpy/linalg/linalg.py", line

 ImportError: ld.so.1: python: fatal: relocation error: file /data/basil5
 /site-packages/lib/python/numpy/linalg/lapack_lite.so: symbol s_cat:
 referenced symbol not found

 Since numpy doesn't have a required dependency on lapack I found this
 error puzzling.  The exception also didn't occur previously.
