I guess it is connected with the entry in system_info.py

   default_src_dirs = ['.','/usr/local/src', '/opt/src','/sw/src']

class LapackSrcNotFoundError(LapackNotFoundError):
    Lapack (http://www.netlib.org/lapack/) sources not found.
    Directories to search for the sources can be specified in the
    scipy_distutils/site.cfg file (section [lapack_src]) or by setting
    the LAPACK_SRC environment variable."""

In the file sample_site.cfg, which is a sample file of site.cfg I 
found   (1)

# src_dirs = ..

# Default values are defined in scipy_distutils/system_info.py
# file and here shown in comments. Feel free to uncomment and modify
# the corresponding values to your system needs.

I will rename rename it (sample_site.cfg) to site.cfg and modify (1)


The setting of the environment variable LAPACK_SRC seems to be  without
