Looks like a bug in handy.py.  This problem does not exist in the
current scipy cvs tree.  I think if you upgrade (i.e. switch to using
the cvs tree) this problem should disappear.

Can you look at the lapack_lite.so (or the equivalent library) it
should be in the prefix/site-packages/Numeric/lapack_lite.so and see
what libraries are linked in?  This looks like an atlas/lapack linking
related issue.
