Comment (by cdavid):

 Ok, I got it. The problem is that Accelerate lapack is actually clapack,
 so many functions ahve different prototypes than expected. In particular,
 the above test crashes on the call to cladiv. LAPACK defines cladiv as a
 function taking 2 complex arguments, and returning one complex value, but
 the cladiv_ symbol is actually the clapack prototype:

 cladiv_(complex float *z, complex *x, complex *y)

 Now, it should be relatively easy to fix this, hopefully
