[SciPy-dev] newcore atlas info on Gentoo

In order to get scipy-0.3.2 to build on Gentoo Linux, I use site.cfg in the
distutils module. This is necessary because Gentoo has renamed the
libf77blas.* libraries to libblas.* in order to allow users to easily switch
between different libraries, ATLAS and Intel's MKL for example.
When I compile newcore using the old site.cfg, my atlas info is properly
reported. However, when I compile newscipy, the atlas info is reportedly
unavailable. I looked into system_info.atlas_info and friends, and discovered
that _lib_names is not informed by site.cfg, it is hardcoded with ['f77blas',
'cblas'], or ['ptf77blas','ptcblas'], etc. If I remove the 'f77', my atlas
info is correctly reported.
