Previously there were files

generic_fblas.pyf         <- this includes what follows
generic_fblas1.pyf        <- signatures for blas 1 routines
generic_fblas2.pyf        <- signatures for blas 2 routines

But then, I suspect, you did

mv generic_fblas.pyf generic_fblas2.pyf

so that you overwrite an existing file when renaming and now we have


As a result one file is lost that contained wrappers to BLAS 2 routines

I think there was no need to rename all these files.
Use the following

def process_all():
    # process the standard files.
    for name in ['fblas2','cblas2','clapack2','flapack2']:

in interface_gen.py.
