Currently you have to edit /scipy_distutils/atlas_info.py file where in
the header write:
 library_path = ['/usr/lib']

You may also want to check out what follows in that file in order to make
other adjustments for your atlas setup.

Btw, you'll need also
  f77blas and cblas
libraries. I didn't notice these ones from your library listing.
