Try editing your site.cfg to configure the BLAS libraries. That might be the
cause of the problem. When we can't find BLAS libraries, we do include the
routines from the reference BLAS, but that might be buggy.

Don't do that. odr is no longer in the sandbox; it is part of scipy proper now,
so I don't know what sandbox you moved it from. Just build and install scipy as
a whole.
