[SciPy-dev] Stupid question.

Hi all,

I'm trying to do a

python setup.py build

on a freshly updated cvs of scipy, so I can test the current state of
things. But the linking is failing with:

gcc -shared build/temp.linux-i686-2.2/fftw_wrap.o
-L/usr/local/home/fperez/lib -Lbuild/temp.linux-i686-2.2 -lfftw_threads
-lrfftw_threads -lfftw -lrfftw -lpthread -lc_misc -lcephes -lgist -o
/usr//bin/ld: cannot find -lfftw_threads
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

The strange thing is that I *do* have all the fft libs:

root[lib]# ldconfig -p | grep fftw
        libsrfftw_threads.so.2 (libc6) =>
        libsrfftw.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/libsrfftw.so.2
        libsfftw_threads.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/libsfftw_threads.so.2
        libsfftw.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/libsfftw.so.2
        librfftw_threads.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/librfftw_threads.so.2
        librfftw.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/librfftw.so.2
        libfftw_threads.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/libfftw_threads.so.2
        libfftw.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/libfftw.so.2

I'm sure I'm missing somethin painfully obvious/stupid here. Could anyone
please enlighten me?
