I think all of your problems are stemming from the inability to 
correctly link to the ATLAS libraries. The weird import behaviors that 
you see follow directly from a failed import of the linear algebra stuff.

If you can try doing a clean build again, check the link command 
arguments that are used when compiling the linear algebra modules 
(fblas, flapack, cblas, clapack, etc.). You *do* have a liblapack in 
/usr/local/lib, but it may not be the liblapack that has ATLAS routines
in it (see the NOTES section, item 2 of SciPy's INSTALL.txt).

(Free)BSD is going to be hard because I don't think there are many SciPy 
users on those platforms.
