I tried all your suggestions:
- I compiled scipy against my BLAS and LAPACK libraries
- I compiled scipy giving only BLAS and LAPACK source (which was then
compiled during scipy build)
- I upgraded f2py and built scipy against altas3.7.8; blas/lapack
libraries and blas/lapack source.
There is no difference.

What is remarkable is that, the error is the same in the 3 cases.
Moreover, if you add up
the first two components of array1 you get the first component of array2.
