Just a guess: did you run python in scipy directory? If you did then
change out of this directory, say, to $HOME and try again.

What is the output of

python scipy_distutils/system_info.py

? And what is the exact location of your atlas library?
Finally, what is the output of 

ls -l /path/to/your/atlas/lib{lapack,f77blas,cblas,atlas}.a
