[SciPy-user] problems installing scipy

I need to build Scipy from sources on my Linux desktop (Slamd64 with Intel 
Fortran compiler).

I've installed Python-2.4.1 in my home directory ~/Python-2.4.1 and Numpy, 
F2PY in another directory ~/PythonHome with the following command:
python setup.py install --home=~/PythonHome/

Then I've compiled the BLAS and LAPACK packages in the directory
~/src/blas and ~/src/LAPACK so in these directory I've got libfblas.a and  

So I've setted the environment variables BLAS and LAPACK to these files:
export ~/src/blas/libfblas.a
export ~/src/LAPACK/lapack_LINUX_IFC.a
export ATLAS=None

But the when I go to the Scipy directory and execute
python setup.py install --home=~/PythonHome/
I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 111, in ?
  File "setup.py", line 85, in setup_package
    ignore_packages = ignore_packages)
  File "scipy_core/scipy_distutils/misc_util.py", line 475, in get_subpackages
    config = setup_module.configuration(*args)
  File "/home/john/SciPy_complete-0.3.2/Lib/linalg/setup_linalg.py", line 40, 
in configuration
    raise NotFoundError,'no lapack/blas resources found'
scipy_distutils.system_info.NotFoundError: no lapack/blas resources found

Can anyone help me?
