We compiled LAPACK and BLAS libraries ourselves according internal instructions below:
NumPy/SciPy installation
See also the Installing SciPy page. 

First make sure that all NumPy/SciPy prerequisites are installed and working properly. Then be sure to remove any old NumPy/SciPy installations (e.g. /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/{numpy,scipy} or $HOME/lib/python2.4/site-packages/{numpy,scipy}). 

NumPy requires the following software installed: 

1. Python 2.4.x or 2.5.x 

Debian packages: python python-dev 

Make sure that the Python package distutils is installed before continuing. For example, in Debian GNU/Linux, distutils is included in the python-dev package. 

Python must also be compiled with the zlib module enabled. 

2. A C compiler. 

3. Optionally an optimized LAPACK library. Similar, to scipy setup.py script, numpy setup.py script can detect optimized LAPACK libraries in the system. See SciPy notes below. 

Scipy requires the following software installed: 

1. NumPy 0.9.2 or newer and its prerequisities. 

2. Complete LAPACK library. 

Debian packages: atlas2-headers atlas2-base atlas2-base-dev 

Various SciPy packages do linear algebra computations using the LAPACK routines. SciPy's setup.py scripts can use number of different LAPACK library setups, including optimized LAPACK libraries such as ATLAS or the Accelerate/vecLib framework on OS X. The notes below give more information on how to prepare the build environment so that SciPy's setup.py scripts can use whatever LAPACK library setup one has. 

3. C and Fortran compilers. 

The following libraries are built and installed in /home/<userid>/cadlib (for solaris 8):


LAPACK is also used for Matlab Users within our company and we used the existing version. I don't know the version but it corresponds to the recommended version from the Numpy installation.
We use g77 compiler (part of gcc package of cadappl) within our company.

>>>(Check ldd lapack_lite.so and find out where the lapack/blas  
>>>libraries referred there come from.)
I do not know how you could run this command...
