[SciPy-user] Problem while importing linalg: undefined symbol: s_wsfe

Hi all,

So far I thought I had a working scipy installation, until I tried out
"import linalg". I then
got the following error message:
>>> import linalg
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
line 8, in ?
from basic import *
line 12, in ?
from lapack import get_lapack_funcs
line 15, in ?
import flapack
undefined symbol: s_wsfe

 I googled for this, and I found that this error could appear when you're
building scipy with a non-gcc compiler
whereas lapack has been compiled with g77. Which is strange, since
everything I compile here uses gcc.
I installed scipy 0.3.2, compiled the ATLAS libs from source, and use a
local install of Numeric 24.0. I use
a Fedora core 3 OS, with python 2.3 and gcc 3.4.4. Any ideas?
