AFAIK, there is still a mysterious segmentation fault in scipy.test() ? 
How about that ?

Is ATLAS recommended or shall we use

   export BLAS_SRC=~/src/blas
   export LAPACK_SRC=~/src/lapack
   mkdir $BLAS_SRC
   cd $BLAS_SRC
   wget http://www.netlib.org/blas/blas.tgz
   tar xzf blas.tgz

   cd $LAPACK_SRC/..
   wget http://www.netlib.org/lapack/lapack.tgz
   tar xzf lapack.tgz

   export BLAS=None
   export LAPACK=None
   export ATLAS=None
