The first thing to do is to look for warnings in the compilation of 
fblasmodule.c that might  lead to int->intp problems.

I did not see anything significant in the build log you last sent, but I 
might have missed something.

The next thing to do is to track down where the segfault is happening.   
You could try running gdb

file <path>/<to>/<your>/<python>
from scipy.linalg import fblas

gdb will catch the segfault and show you where it died. 

As a last resort, I insert print statements to guide me where the code 
is dying and carefully inspect that section of code.
