Dear list members

Installing scipy from CVS, the ATLAS libraries could not be found (since they
are installed in a non standard place). The error message indicates, that the 
ATLAS environment variable can be used to provide the path information, but 
it seems not to get read. 

As a quick hack I added the envrionment variable to the path and everything 
worked out fine. Patch appended.

All the Best
